During times of change and uncertainty, it is normal to feel stressed and anxious. These feelings should not be barriers to your understanding of mathematics. MLS is dedicated to helping all students make sense of mathematics, think mathematically, and see how mathematics plays a part in their worlds.



Mathematics Literacy Services supports all mathematics and mathematics-related courses. This includes algebra-based courses (such as MAT 0993, MAT 1050, MAT 1800, and MAT 2010), statistics courses from departments across campus (such as STA 1020 and BA 2300), and Quanitative Experience (QE) courses offered to fulfill General Education requirements (such as MAE 1000, FPC 1010, BA 1200). 

Contact MLS to find out how we can support you on your mathematical journey.
