The Mathematics Assistance Centre has been created to aid in the transition from secondary to university level mathematics.
The services the Centre provides can be grouped into two categories:† Diagnostic & Review and Course Support.† The first allows for the design of an individual program to refresh a student's knowledge in fundamental math skills, prerequisite to a university course.† The second includes, for example, homework sessions, mock tests and exam reviews, as forms of supplemental instruction to particular courses.† Content is presented in various modes, both on-line and in classroom settings.
Services are provided not only for mathematics courses, but also for courses with a quantitative component from other departments.

Some Student Comments from the 2006/7 MAC Survey:
"The homework sessions were extremely helpful... The student tutors deserve a special mention because they are absolutely amazing and actually made calculus fun!"
"The MAC made the transition from high school math to university math much easier.† I would encourage anyone who needs a little, or a lot, of help to use the MAC.† MAC and Tina form an integral part of Laurier Mathematics and were greatly appreciated."
"Very helpful.† I went to the homework session only once at the end of the year, and wished I had went every week."
"The MAC definitely helped me obtain a higher grade in MA130.† The slow explanations are key to understanding some of the material.† Thanks Tina!"
