Department of Economics’ Mathematics Tutorial for Arts Students Economics becomes increasingly mathematically intense as students progress through the program. To better prepare our students to progress through the program, the Department of Economics is offering a unique opportunity for Faculty of Arts’ students to upgrade their mathematical skills. The Department of Economics believes strongly that strong mathematical skills will assist students in their studies and thus, is investing its very limited resources in offering a free non-credit mathematics tutorial, taught by a full-time faculty member, which will be structured according to students needs. A voluntary online mathematics test will be provided during the first week of classes to allow students to self-test (the answers can be downloaded and the student self-evaluates). Students can use the results of the test as an indicator of the need to participate in the mathematics tutorials. Students may want to bring the results of the test to the tutorial to discuss with the instructor (this is voluntary). Of course, any Faculty of Arts’ students intending to take introductory economics may participate if they feel the need to upgrade. The tentative tutorial schedule is listed below. Final schedule will depend on student demand and will be updated on the department webpage. The tutorials will be structured so to provide as much individual assistance as possible. The first meeting will take place on Thursday, September 11th at 1530h in room HH235. If you have any questions, please email Professor Curtis at firstname.lastname@example.org . Tutorials are tentatively booked on the following days in ROOM HH235 from 1530h to 1730h Thursday September 11th Monday September 15th Tuesday September 16th Monday September 22nd *Tuesday September 23rd Thursday September 25th Monday September 29th Tuesday September 30th Thursday October 2nd Monday October 6th *Tuesday October 7th Thursday October 9th *Tuesday October 14th Thursday October 16th *Tuesday October 21st Thursday October 23rd *Tuesday October 28th Thursday October 30th Final schedule will depend on student demand. *If a room becomes available Wednesdays will be substituted for Tuesday for maximum choice.
