Differential Equations Resources

How this resource helps:

Differential Equations students can receive support through Drop-in Academic Mentoring and other Learning Center programs and resources.

Looking for help with Differential Equations (Math 217)? The Learning Center has you covered!

Drop-in Academic Mentoring

Drop-in Academic Mentors facilitate weekly group learning hours for Differential Equations in classrooms on the Danforth campus. Drop-in sessions typically start during the third week of each Fall and Spring semester and run through the last week of classes.

During Drop-in Academic Mentoring sessions, mentors are available to answer questions, help with homework, and promote group learning. Students do not have to sign up to meet with a Drop-in Mentor; they can stop by anytime during a scheduled session and leave at any point.

To learn more about Drop-in Academic Mentoring, visit our Drop-in programs page or check out our mentoring sessions calendar.

Matched Academic Mentoring (MAM)

Matched Academic Mentoring provides supplemental learning opportunities in a small group setting for eligible students in select courses, including Differential Equations. Students may be eligible for Matched Academic Mentoring if they:

  • Have experienced challenges in key prerequisite courses
  • Have identified significant gaps in their foundational knowledge of a subject
  • Feel like they are falling behind in a class and are struggling to catch up
  • Are on Academic Probation or Academic Warning

Matched Academic Mentoring groups typically meet for 2 hours per week and are capped at 3-4 students, to ensure that mentors are able to provide personalized support in an unstructured small group setting. Regular attendance is expected. Students who are interested in working with a Matched Academic Mentor should fill out the MAM request form, which opens on the first day of classes each Fall and Spring semester. The matching process can take up to 10 business days, depending on the time of year and availability of mentors.

To learn more about Matched Academic Mentoring and access the request form, visit our MAM program page.

Math Help Room

The Math Department offers weekly drop-in support for several math courses, including Differential Equations, through their Mathematics and Statistics Help Room. All students are welcome to visit the Help Room at any of the times designated for their course(s). This resource is not affiliated with the Learning Center.
