So how can you benefit most from the Math Center?
 
1) Remember to come prepared: When you visit the MC, bring your course materials (i.e., your book, your syllabus, your problem set, etc.). We're here to help you, but this is a lot easier to do if you've been diligent about attending class, taking notes, and practicing your math work in your study time. You may not know why you're struggling with a concept or a problem, but our team can help you more quickly and effectivey if you've already started trying to help yourself!
 
2) Get engaged with the group: The MC staff will often work through problems with student groups, and as with all of your studies, this process can be truly beneficial if you really try to involve yourself in the process... ask questions, learn from others, and be an active participant.  
 
3) Make math and the Math Center part of your routine: Just like any new skillset, developing your math skills takes time, and taking too much time away from building your skills will make you rusty to be sure! So, visit the MC often and regularly, spend a few minutes each day reviewing your notes, refreshing yourself on concepts, and doing practice problems. In short, make doing your math work part of your routine.  Not only will you be reinforcing the right study habits, but you'll also be building your math skills and training your brain to DO MATH on command.
