Our Office (MS 337A)

 

Our office and club room is a super cute space in the Mathematical Sciences building where you can unwind after a long class, hang out with your peers, or study for that test. We will attempt to follow a 9-5 schedule weekdays, during the Fall/Winter semesters of the University of Calgary school year. We do our absolute best to assure we are open as much as possible during these hours, however, please note that our office hours depend on our volunteers and sometimes the office hours may change without notice.

Review Sessions, Tutors, Exam Packs, and Math Links

 

We offer some fantastic resources all aimed at helping you succeed. Other than our club room and math library, here are some other helpful resources:

 

Our final exam review sessions are curated with profs and TA's throughout the department to assure the best study material to help you succeed. Our list of well-reputed tutors will be able to help you keep on top of that class and teach you the skills you need to not stress over marks. Our exam packages are packed with extra practise questions to test the knowledge we know you have. And, we also host online math help chat rooms so that you can get help from peers, opening the doors to new ideas and methods to solve the trickiest of problems.

 

If you need help with math, or you just want to stay on top of those few classes, give us a call and we'll do our best to get you the resources you need to succeed. 

Review Sessions

 

We offer final exam Review Sessions for the following classes:

  • MATH 211 - Linear I
  • MATH 249 - University Calculus
  • MATH 265 - Calculus I

We at SUM-C want you to succeed in mathematics more than anyone, except for maybe yourself. With that in mind, we know a lot of people who love math and a lot of people who are good at teaching it. if you need some extra help don't wait until it's too late and let us know. We will do our best to set you up with well-practiced, reputable, and respectable tutors who also want you to succeed.

For peer help find us on Discord and join our math help chat rooms. These chat rooms are filled with people who love math and are willing to help you find a solution. They might just be able to show you a trick or two, or maybe you'll be the one tutoring. You never know. 

Exam Packages

 

Being a math club for so long means that you acquire a lot of information over the years. We have an extensive library of questions and solutions for a number of University level math courses.

 

You may think that old questions aren't a good resource but, what's been taught in math hasn't changed in quite a while.

 

Questions of the past contain the same methods as the ones seen today in your exams.

Discovering

 mathematics 

 

gallery/k.adams - sept 21

The ‘SUM-C Summer Seminar’ is for undergraduate students to practice presentation skills, share something that interests them, and to hear from others interested in math. This is a fantastic way to learn or practice valuable presentation skills in three unique formats which can be put into a CV. Presentations can focus on your research project, or any topic you believe others would be interested in hearing about. You can also use this as an opportunity to prepare for conferences and to build confidence in presenting. Above all, the Seminar is open to all and fun for everyone who enjoys math!
