CTL Workshops

Rockin the XY Plane

Here it comes, our tri-annual message on CTL Workshops:

If you think a Cartesian coordinate is a what you wear to go with your favorite sweater, it might be time for you to bone up on your quantitative skills.  And, right on cue, the CTL if offering a series of quantitative workshops — 90 minutes to a better, more quantitatively adept you.   The topics are basic algebragraphs, and word problems, and there are two chances for each.

Workshops are in Briggs 420 and run 90-ish minutes.

Calculus Review

For those of you who need a little refresher, tell them the good people on Briggs 2nd sent you.

CTL math tutors will be holding several calculus review sessions designed for students who want to “brush up” on critical skills used in classes including: Calculus II and III as well as various chemistry and physics courses.  Workshops will cover the basics of integrals or derivatives and will be held in Briggs 420 at the following dates/times.  If you have questions, please contact Julie Haurykiewicz, CTL Director.  Thanks!

Derivative Reviews:

Wednesday, September 28 at 9 p.m.

Monday, October 3, at 8:30 p.m.  The integraDerivatives

Integral Reviews:

Thursday, September 29 at 8:00pm
