PASS

Peer-Assisted Study Sessions

The PASS (Peer Assisted Study Sessions) program offers small group peer-led study sessions for multiple courses each semester. The sessions are led by an undergraduate student who has excelled in the course previously, has been selected and trained for the position, and attends the class again serving as an assistant to the instructor. The PASS Tutor offers two guided study sessions weekly, permitting currently enrolled students to review content, ask questions, discuss issues, and employ effective studying strategies. Because the PASS Tutor attends the class, all materials discussed are current and relevant. PASS is free, and students are asked to sign in and participate!

For more information, please contact the coordinator, Andrew M. Koke.

Temporary changes to PASS Schedule:
PASS for Jia (section 7860, TR 9:30-10:45) will meet two hours later this week, on Wednesday14 November. Instead of meeting at 6p in GY436, the study session will meet at 8p in GY436.

PASS for Suleymanova (section 2732, 8am MWF) is canceled for the remainder of the semester. Students should instead attend Suleymanova's PASS sessions for section 2733 (9:05am MWF), which are held on Tuesdays 6:30 in Sycamore 212, and Thursdays 6:30 in SPEA 273.

Students may attend any PASS session. Below are the weekly PASS sessions for the Fall 2018 semester, in both MATH-D116 and MATH-M118. If your section of finite is not listed, this simply means that a PASS tutor is not attending your section. However, all PASS tutors are attending other finite sections, and so you can be sure that the PASS tutor's knowledge of finite and the exams is current. You may attend any PASS session that fits your schedule.
Feel free to attend as many PASS sessions as you want! Our research shows that attending PASS at least once per week corresponds to an 8-12% improvement on tests, raising your final grade substantially!
