Why do I get kicked out Mondays at 4?

In order to provide the best help we can we hold employee training meetings every Monday to train our TAs on topics they might except to see coming up that week which is why the lab is not just “closed” but unavailable to use as study space. 

What if I don’t have a phone to scan the QR codes?

You can also access the queue by going to on a laptop or on the computer located by the north entrance to the lab which is available for student use. 

Why do I have to sign up for one question at a time?
In order to fairly assist every student who comes in for math help we ask that students sign up for one question at a time. This ensures that each student has an equal opportunity for help. We also have to track this data for the university (which allows up to track particular problems that multiple students struggle with and other such application).
Why don’t the reviews cover exactly what is on my test?
Math professors do not share a copy of their exams with our tutors. We do our best to prepare you for your exams but without being able to view the test it may not always be perfectly in line. 
What happens if a tutor has to leave me mid problem?
The tutors are instructed to find you another tutor to finish helping. If no tutor is available when yours leave, please be prepared to sign up on the queue again and someone will get to you as soon as possible. 
Where are the desks/tables?
We have asked for an order of tables and will hopefully have them sometime in the future. (We aren’t a huge fan of the wheelie desks either)
I need answers about the layout of my class, can the Math Lab help me?
Our secretaries are trained to help you receive assistance in the lab, we do not have access to your grades, test scores or TA information. You will have to reach out to your professor or teaching assistant for that. 
How can I find out about reviews?
The Math Lab is always working to improve its outreach and functionality. We are now posting paper copies of the review information at both the front and back of the lab, color coordinated to the class number. Review information is also being posted on our website and emailed to the professor and students. There are plenty of resources that can be used to find review information. Make sure to write it down somewhere when you find it so you don’t forget!
Why won’t the Lab give me access to dry erase markers?
We rack up quite the bill constantly restocking our dry erase markers for our tutors. Trying to supply them to all the students as well would be out of our budget. But you are always more than welcome to use our whiteboards if you have access to your own markers.
