The Math & Science Center (MSC) is located in the Center for Teaching & Learning (CTL) on the first floor of the E.H. Little Library.
Drop-in hours for Spring 2013, beginning January 21, are:
Sunday through Thursday, 8:00-11:00 pm
Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday, 4:00-6:00 pm
(see specific schedules by discipline linked below)
For tutoring at other times, please make an appointment.
The MSC offers free assistance to Davidson College students in all areas of math and science, with a focus on the introductory courses. Trained and highly qualified peers hold one-on-one and small-group tutoring sessions on a drop-in basis or by appointment, as well as timely recap sessions ahead of scheduled reviews. Help with lab reports, data interpretation, research projects, and oral presentations is also offered. Emphasis is placed on thinking critically, understanding concepts, making connections, and communicating effectively, not just getting correct answers. In addition, students can start or join a study group and use the MSC as a group or individual study space.
