For the Math Help Center this year, we will be using Teams and a specific "Math Help Center" Team has been created. You or any student can join by using the code
(see this link for more details: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/use-a-link-or-code-to-join-a-team-c957af50-df15-46e3-b5c4-067547b64548)
The MHC Team has a chat channel set up for each course. We encourage students to post questions there which can be answered asynchronously, either by TAs or by fellow peers in the course.
The TA's comments will have an identifier so students know when they are getting an official response from a TA.
Additionally, there is a live-chat channel where students can get one-on-one videochat help at scheduled times each week.
Only the MHC TAs are allowed to initiate posts in this channel, but students can then reply to the post.
So, for example, a TA might say "I am here for the next two hours to help answer questions" and then a student could reply to that post saying "I have a calculus question" .
The TAs will then initiate a videochat with each student in the queue on a first come - first serve basis.
The times for the live-chat sessions are:
Sundays 2:00 - 4:00pm with Amanda
Tuesdays 7:00 - 9:00pm with Kara
Thursdays 7:00 - 9:00pm with Gabriel
(all times Atlantic)
Students are reminded to follow the online code of conduct when interacting with their peers. We want to make sure the MHC is a welcoming and supportive place for those that need help.
