- ABOUT US
- STUDENT LIFE
Learning and understanding science and mathematics are essential in the liberal arts education framework because it prepares students with the proper mindset and skills to solve, analyze, and understand real life problems. The mission of AUW Science & Math Center (SMC) is to help all the students who have difficulty in solving scientific and mathematical problems in their courses and to provide a safe space among peers for the ease of learning. These students would improve the logical and problem-solving skills that will help them succeed in their respective careers. Such learning support is extra, optional, and non-compulsory and is designed to assist students in developing scientific and mathematical abilities to reach their academic and career-oriented goals.
The goals for the students who enlist the help of the SMC are as follows:
Students can make multiple appointments in a week with tutors for half an hour to an hour on specific time. They can also walk in with their problems and tutors can help them according to their availability. Weeklies are appointments where a student can make half an hour appointment with a specific peer tutor for a specific time every week in the semester.
We conduct workshops on both general and specific Science/Math related topics. For instance, last year the Center provided a general workshop on ‘’GRE Quantitative part’’ and “Functions and transformation of graphs.” Students are encouraged to suggest us workshop topics. Students also provide feedback for workshops and tutoring. We take suggestions and concerns seriously and try to incorporate them in our teaching pedagogy.
