Calculus Help Room

Graduate Teaching Assistants (TAs) staff a help desk for calculus courses (131,132, 233) and differential equations. Students who need help with homework during the evening may also visit the Calculus Help Desk in Cornerstone. The Calculus Help Room is located in Lopata Hall, Room 323.

Cornerstone: The Center for Advanced Learning

Cornerstone resources are available to help Washington University undergraduates succeed and persist to graduation in their chosen fields. Cornerstone offers active and collaborative learning opportunities to help students make the transition to college, master class materials in foundational courses, and prepare them for advanced courses and courses in their major.

Engineering students may be particularly interested in Cornerstone's peer-led, team-learning groups. This program pairs trained upperclassmen with small groups of students who work on group exercises directly connected to course work. Initially created in conjunction with the chemistry department to address the needs of freshman taking the introductory chemistry and lab classes, PLTL (Peer Led Team Learning) is now offered to biomedical engineering, physics and calculus students. Cornerstone is located in Gregg House on the first floor.


Problem-Solving Teams

Study groups are coordinated for specific engineering classes. Each study group is facilitated by an upper-class engineering student who has been academically successful in the course. Study group information is made available during the first week of the semester in specific classes or though Engineering Student Services at any time.
