The Math Question Center

The Math Question Center (MQC) is a community where students in Math M, 1a, 1b, 21a, and 21b come together to work on their problem sets (or PSets). The center is staffed by undergraduate course assistants (CAs) who are there to help you productively approach your PSets. The goal of the MQC is for you to not only complete your homework correctly, but also synthesize the main ideas from the PSets so you can apply them more broadly.

The MQC is open Sundays - Thursdays from 7:30pm to 11pm. It is staffed by CAs on Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays from 7:30pm to 10:30pm, and on Mondays and Wednesdays from 8:30pm to 10:30pm. (You can recognize the CAs from the name tags they wear around their necks.) You are more than welcome to work with other students in the MQC when it is open, even if there are no CAs present. As a general rule, if no class takes place the following day, then the MQC is CLOSED. (For example, the MQC will be closed on Sunday, October 13, since there are no classes on Monday, October 14 due to Indigenous Peoples' Day.) Please refer to the list below for the exact location of the MQC for each course this semester: For questions or concerns please contact Hakim Walker ( and Drew Zemke (

Getting the Most Out of the MQC

In past semesters, the MQC has been used by many students. We are delighted that it has been so popular! However, this means that MQC staffers are often able to spend only a few minutes helping any one student. Here are some tips to help you make use of this time effectively:
