Math Jam

What is Math Jam?

Math Jam is additional resource (complementing professor office hours, class CA sessions, and the Math Workshop) for students studying mathematics at Wes. Math Jam works on a "study hall” model. Students are encourage to come, on their own or in a group. There is plenty of space to study and tutors are standing by when questions arise.

Where can I find Math Jam?

Math Jam is located in Woodhead Lounge (Exley 184).
The sessions are on Tuesdays from 4:20 - 6:50pm.

Why Math Jam?

Community + Practice = Success!

At Math Jam, space is available for students to come on their own, or in a group, to work on homework sets, study for exams, and find new study partners. Experienced tutors are on-site, ready to answer questions and review concepts as they arise.

An additional feature of Math Jam is that it is not limited to pure math questions alone. The tutors are able to assist with the “mathy” aspects of classes from other departments. The tutors present on Tuesday and Wednesday are well equipped to field intro-level questions in Economic, Physics, and Computer Science. The tutors on Thursday can also help with Physics and have extensive experience tutoring for the QAC. All tutors are knowledgeable in the standard math calculus sequence (and much more).

Additional Resources

In addition to the support listed above, drop-in office hours are likely also available through your instructors or TAs. Wesleyan also has many other resources to assist students with coursework! Students can also contact the Deans' Peer Tutoring Program with additional questions.
