Mandatory recitation sessions take place on Friday in Room B 214 between 9:30 am – 10:45
am (Section 1) and 11:00 am – 12:15 pm (Section 2).
These sessions will be guided by
Teaching Assistants and focus on problem solving to prepare students for tests, quizzes, and
homework via “hands-on approaches”.
Center for Academic Support in Engineering
Additional (optional) help sessions are offered by the Center for Academic Support in En-
gineering (CASE) in the Engineering Library. Tutors are available to support the students
during homework and quiz/test preparation.
Peer-Assisted Study Sessions (PASS)
Some engineering courses are historically known to be very challenging such that many
students either receive a
ail the course, or
ithdraw early (DFW). This is known as
high DFW rates and Engineering Mechanics falls into that category. But to prevent either of
those scenarios (in Engineering Mechanics) and to help students to succeed, the college now
offers the optional Peer-Assisted Study Sessions (PASS). The meeting dates and times for
the sessions will be determined based on the students’ availability via an online survey/poll
that will be conducted within the first week of classes. Participation is highly suggested.
