What is Math and Science Services?
Math and Science Services focuses on expanding course content, study skills, and building skill competence
Math and Science Services is NOT:
- A replacement
for professor/instructor office hours. If you are having trouble with
a mathematics course, your first step is to seek your professor/instructor
and seek their help. Follow their recommendations.
- A solution
factory for graded assignments. Tutors must follow the guidelines set by the professor/instructor, as well as those of Math and Science Services when assisting students with graded work. A tutor “hands-off graded work” policy will be enforced until the coordinator of Math and Science Services is given specifics by the professor/instructor.
- A substitute
lecture for a missed class. Tutors are not instructors and therefore
cannot lecture or teach material. However, they can assist in understanding concepts and clarifying any confusions or misconceptions.
- A place
where weeks of classes, homework, and study can be made up with a tutor
just prior to a test. At test time, priority is given to those students who have visited Math and Science Services on a regular basis. It is not possible to do well on a college exam if the proper work has not been done to study and to keep up on the material.
Who can use Math and Science Services?
Math and Science Services, an individual must be a currently-enrolled UNI student who

Center, they must sign out from Math and Science Services and sign in to
use the other service.
