Questions Regarding Your Studies? / Problems With Your Homework?

  • Your tutors are more then your teachers who correct your work. Feel free to ask them for help. They are students themselves and know that everyone struggles sometimes.
  • The Math Hour is especially for you and you questions regarding the exercises. It is a workspace where students meet to work on their homework and where you can also find tutors who help with everything you ask for. In the summer term, the Math Hour is in room N16, building C, every Monday and Wedesday from 2pm to 4pm. In the winter term it switches to Monday and Thursday same time and location.
    In times of covid-19 you can meet the tutors of the Math Hour every day of the week (excluding Saturday and Sunday) from 2pm to 3pm. For more Information log in via Ilias to the Math Hour.
