### Mathematical Academic Centre for Excellence (MACE)

**Teaching and Learning Building - Room 10-2088**

The Mathematical Academic Centre for Excellence is available for use by students taking courses with high mathematics content. The room can be used for working in groups or for getting help from tutors and faculty who are available approximately 20 hours per week. The space is supported by the Department of Mathematics and Statistics and the Academic Success Centre.

### Academic Success Centre

The Academic Success Centre offers a variety of one-to-one and drop-in tutoring services for assistance with mathematics, physics, computer science, commerce, and economics coursework, as well as learning strategies and writing across the disciplines. In addition, we provide specialized services for students who are learning English and peer-led learning programs such as Supplemental Instruction. To ensure quality service in all learning environments, all of our tutors and peer leaders receive on-going certified training. All of the Academic Success Centre services are **absolutely FREE** to UNBC students! We invite you to come by and check out our services. We are located on the first floor of the Library Building.
