The Math question Center

The Math Question Center (MQC) is a space for students in Math 1a, 1b, 21a, and 21b to consult about mathematics homework. Drop in to meet up with other students in your course, work together, and get guidance from undergraduate course assistants from Math 1a/b and 21a/b and graduate student calculus coaches.

The Fall 2017 locations will be announced. We will likely be again in SC 105,110 or 309 or 309a in the fall. (In the spring of 2017, Math 1a met in in SC 105 (S/Tu/Th), and Math 1b in SC 110, Math 21b in SC 309 (S-Th). Math 21a in SC B10 S-W, and on Thursdays, 21a is in SC 309a. )

The MQC is staffed Sundays-Thursdays 8:30-10:30 PM with occasional breaks for holidays. As a general rule, if no class takes place following day, then the MQC is closed. The rooms are usually open already from 7:30-8:30 PM. Feel free to meet up with other students to get started!

Getting most out of the MQC

In past semesters, the MQC has been used by many students. We are delighted that it has been so popular! However, this means that MQC staffers are often able to spend only a few minutes helping any one student. Here are some tips to help you make use of this time effectively:
