Hi Everyone,

MAT157Y1. This can be an unsettling and frightening time for first year
students and second year students as they try to build a good math
base on which to grow.

I have a growing list of students who would like to be enrolled in Math
programs and it is with these students that I would like to establish
contact with graduate students who are able to provide some guidance
for them this time of adjustment.

NOTE:

THERE WILL BE A MAXIMUM OF 3 OFFICIAL MENTORING GROUP
SESSIONS FOR THE YEAR.  THIS MAY INVOLVE THE REVIEW OF
PAST PAPERS OR EXAM PREP ACTIVITIES!!

What is in it for you?

*   Participation in these type of activities is a crucial requirement for
some scholarships

*   Employers regard this type of behaviour favourably when they
examine applicants to jobs

*   You will be contributing to the renewed focus on improving the
students' experience in which the Mathematics Department is
currently engaging

*   Recognition by the Department
