Across campus and across disciplines, there is a growing awareness of the vital role quantitative literacy plays in student success. The ability to reason with quantitative information is viewed as crucial to becoming a successful student and citizen. At the The University of Montana, we are committed to helping students succeed in math at every level. We offer free, drop-in math tutoring for any student taking developmental and 100-level math courses.
Students in developmental and non-calculus track mathematics courses (M065, M090, M095, M105, M115, M135 and M136) receive assistance at the math@mansfield Tutoring Center site from tutors specifically trained in probability, statistics, introductory algebra and elementary education mathematics. The math@mansfield Tutoring Center is located on the third (main) level of the Mansfield Library.
Monday - Thursday 11am-3pm, 6:30pm-9pm
Students taking courses on the calculus track – M121, M122, M1521, M162, M171, and M172 - can find help at The Math Learning Center, located in the basement of the Math Building.
Monday – Thursday 10am – 4pm
Both centers are equipped with a plentiful supply of what some tutors call “non-digital laptop communication devices” – which is high-tech language for a lap-size whiteboard with a marker attached. In the past, even with encouragement from the tutors, most students were reluctant to get out of their chair to work at the big whiteboards on the walls. Now, with a scattering of personal whiteboards lying about, students can work out a problem where they are, and it’s easier for the tutor to add a bit of help or point out a misstep when needed.
STUDY JAM focuses on providing group study opportunities and tutoring for students in high enrollment courses, many of which require quantitative skills. The study tables operate two nights a week, Monday and Wednesdays from 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm beginning Wednesday, September 5th in the UC Commons, offering support for students in the following courses:Spanish (SPNS) 101, 201, 202

Tutors help students prepare for essay tests, including the Upper Division Writing Proficiency Assessment (known as the UDWPA). All undergraduate students are required to pass the UDWPA as a General Education Requirement. Students should meet this requirement by the time they have completed 70 college credits. Please visit UM’s UDWPA website at www.umt.edu/udwpa for more information.
