Wilfrid Laurier University Centre for Student Success

The Mathematics Assistance Centre has been created to aid in the transition from secondary to university level mathematics.

The services the Centre provides can be grouped into two categories:  Diagnostic & Review and Course Support.  The first allows for the design of an individual program to refresh a student's knowledge in fundamental math skills, prerequisite to a university course.  The second includes, for example, homework sessions, mock tests and exam reviews, as forms of supplemental instruction to particular courses.  Content is presented in various modes, both on-line and in classroom settings.

Services are provided not only for mathematics courses, but also for courses with a quantitative component from other departments.

Some Student Comments from the 2006/7 MAC Survey:

"The homework sessions were extremely helpful... The student tutors deserve a special mention because they are absolutely amazing and actually made calculus fun!"

"The MAC made the transition from high school math to university math much easier.  I would encourage anyone who needs a little, or a lot, of help to use the MAC.  MAC and Tina form an integral part of Laurier Mathematics and were greatly appreciated."

"Very helpful.  I went to the homework session only once at the end of the year, and wished I had went every week."

"The MAC definitely helped me obtain a higher grade in MA130.  The slow explanations are key to understanding some of the material.  Thanks Tina!"
