Math Resource Room (MRR) Policies
Students in 15300, 15800, 16010, 16020, 16100, 16200, 16500, 16600, and 26100 can get help with their coursework in the Math Resource Room (MRR) in MATH 211.
The MRR (MATH 211) is open from the first week of classes until the end of Dead Week*.
FALL semesters: Monday through Thursday from 10:30 am to 5:20 pm and Friday from 10:30 am - 2:20 pm.
SPRING semesters: Monday through Thursday from 11:30 am to 5:20 pm and closed on Fridays.
*MRR is closed for Purdue University Holidays and Breaks and during Finals Week.
The MRR is staffed primarily by teaching assistants for these courses. See the MRR schedule for more information.
How to Use the MRR
- To study: Use MATH 211, the Math Library (third floor), or the computer lab (B101).
- To ask a question: Stand in line in MATH 205 and wait to be called.
- An instructor will work out a similar question with you. They will not do your exact homework problems. This is more beneficial for you, since it better prepares you for quizzes and exams.
- Collaborate with the students in your course in MATH 211
- Piazza (if available for your course)
- Supplemental Instruction
- COSINE/WISP-WIEP Tutoring Programs
- Individual office hours (see your course webpage)
- Email your instructor (see your course webpage)
- Math Tutor List
- DO attend class to learn the material. The MRR is not a replacement for attending class.
- DO ask specific questions (e.g. “I know I need to take the derivative, but am having difficulty with the quotient rule”) .
- DO collaborate with other students.
- Do NOT ask an instructor to sign a form.
- Do NOT charge electronics (this is a safety hazard).
- Do NOT ask an instructor to do your homework for you.
- Do NOT ask for help for a class not supported by the MRR. The MRR supports MA 15300, MA 15800, MA 16010, MA 16020, MA 16100, MA 16200, MA 16500, MA 16600, and MA 26100.
- You may be asked to leave if you do not follow the policies of the MRR.
