Lower Level Math Courses
The following web pages for selected lower level math courses contain
primarily information for the start of the semester.
During the semester, check with your course head or
section leader to see if the site will be updated with homework
assignments, exam information, etc.
See also the Handbook (2015-2016) [PDF] from
For other math courses, check with the person teaching the course to see if a web page will be created/maintained. The FAS registrar maintains a complete listing of the faculty, courses and descriptions of math courses.
Math Question Center
The Math Question Center (shortly MQC),
is a place that you can drop by to work on or ask questions about
your math homework, for classes up to the Math 21b level.
It's staffed by Course Assistants and Graduate Students
who are available to help you as you do
your homework. The MQC is also a great place to
meet and work with other people in your course. |
The center is typically open from 8:30 to 10:30 p.m. on Sundays through Thursdays. Students in Math 1a, 1b, 21a, and 21b are encouraged to drop by. Students in Math M may visit the Math M study center in SC 216 from 7:30 to 10:30 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays. A staffing schedule is posted on the Math M website.
For more information, visit the current MQC Web page maintained by Yu_Wen Hsu (email@example.com).
The following pamphlets contain useful information about math
courses, concentrating in math, courses in math, honors and graduate schools.

in Rm 334. |
Admission and financial aid
|Information on admission and financial aid for students can be obtained from the Harvard Admission and Financial aid office web site. It provides also a list of frequently asked questions .|
|If you're a concentrator, or you're just casually interested in mathematics, the math club is a great place to meet other like-minded people, get some great information about grad school, summer opportunities, job opportunities, and hear some great talks (or eat pies at pi-day). Please don't ask to join the math club from outside Harvard.|
|The undergraduate Mathematics Colloquium (aka Math Table) sponsored by the Mathematics Department, meets every Tuesday night at 5:30 in Mather House Private Dining Rooms A & B. Its purpose is to expose students to diverse topics of pure and applied mathematics and to suggest potential Senior Thesis topics. Speakers include faculty, guest speakers, graduate students and undergraduate students. All students, irrespective of their mathematical backgrounds, are strongly encouraged to attend and/or to give talks. The two best undergraduate talks at the colloquium each year will win the endowed Rogers Prize. For more information, please contact Noam Elkies (firstname.lastname@example.org). In the separate Math table page, upcoming talks as well as previous talks and winners can be found.|
Harvard Gender Inclusivity In Mathematics
If you are interested in issues of diversity and inclusivity in the department,
a student group is starting in 2015 with plans for speakers for a
discussion series, and social events.
Check them out!.
They are happy for more people to get involved.
