Contact us for more information and for the hours when help for these courses is available by:

The MAA is staffed by full time COD mathematics faculty and non-classroom part time faculty providing one-on-one help with homework problems or clarifying concepts from math coursework. Sessions may be limited to 15 minutes when other students are waiting, but students may have unlimited turns.
MAA staff have online access to most textbooks and solution manuals for reference. However, they are not able to share that access with students.
