Directed Homework Session Facilitators
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.
