The Math Question Center

The Math Question Center (MQC) is a community where students in Math M, 1a, 1b, 21a, and 21b come together to work on their problem sets (or PSETs). The center is staffed by undergraduate course assistants (CAs) who are there to help you productively approach your PSETS. The goal of the MQC is for you to not only complete your homework correctly, but also synthesize the main ideas from the PSETS so you can apply them more broadly.

The MQC is open Sundays - Thursdays (excluding holidays) from 7:30pm to 11pm, and is staffed by CAs from 8:30pm to 10:30pm. As a general rule, if no class takes place the following day, then the MQC is closed. Please refer to the schedule below for the exact location of the MQC for each course this semester: NEW!: Starting Monday 9/18, 21a and 1b swap: the 21a MQC will be in 309 and the 1b MQC will be in B10. For questions, please contact the MQC Coordinators, Brendan Kelly ( and Hakim Walker (

Getting the 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:
