MAC Directed Homework Session Facilitators 

Each academic term, the MAC will conducts directed homework sessions for several math courses (which courses each term, depends on scheduling and budget):

     MA100   Introductory Calculus for the Natural Sciences
     MA101   Calculus I for the Natural Sciences
     MA110* Introduction to Differential and Integral Calculus 
     MA121   Introduction to Mathematical Proofs 
     MA122   Introduction to Linear Algebra 
     MA241   Statistical Methods for the Life Sciences

These 1.5-hour weekly sessions will be a modified form of Supplemental Instruction (SI), with which some students may be familiar.  Each session will aim to encorporate effective learning strategies while reviewing and reinforcing course content. 

Homework Session Facilitators may be expected to attend the course lectures (see the WLU master timetable to check scheduling) and will conduct one homework session each week.  Duties may also include providing assistance in the MAC's Student Study Centre, augmenting our team of Peer Tutors.

Time commitment is approximately five to eight hours per week, and training is provided during the beginning of the term.  Rate of pay starts at $19.50 per hour.

Candidates must have earned a minimum grade of A- (i.e. 10 on the 12-point grade system) in the course for which they are applying, have excellent communication and organizational skills, and model good learning strategies.  Only students with an overall GPA of 7.0 or higher will be considered.

Third and fourth year students are preferred, but applications from students in the second year of their program will also be considered.  Only registered WLU undergraduates may apply.

If you are interested in applying for one of these positions, please complete the relevant on-line form linked below, or drop by BA432 for more information.
