Math and Science Support

If you are experiencing difficulty with your math and/or science course(s), we are here to help. We always suggest visiting your math and science instructor during their office hours or emailing your instructor to set up an appointment. As a supplement, we provide additional math and physics resources to all RIT students.

 Math and Science Assessments

If you are experiencing difficulty with a math and/or a science course, you can request a one-on-one Math and Science Assessment meeting with a content expert. During the meeting, we will discuss your history and current difficulties with math and/or science courses, and the results of the diagnostic exam. Together, we will develop a course of action to help you be more successful in your course. Some recommendations may include using better study strategies, utilizing study centers, and/or enrolling in one of the Academic Success Center courses, such as Critical Math Skills.

Before the meeting, you will complete a diagnostic exam to evaluate your knowledge. The diagnostic exam will be sent directly to you for you to complete, and your results should be emailed to the Academic Success Center. This information helps to ensure that your one-on-one Math and Science Assessment meeting is as productive as possible. 

Math and Science Assessment appointments can be scheduled in person or online (via Zoom).

The Math and Science Assessment is a helpful service for students who:

  • Want to improve their performance and understanding in their math/science class
  • Tried tutoring, office hours, or other similar services but still need more support
  • Identify with one or more of the following statements:
    • I’m lost in my math/science class
    • I forgot my high school math
    • I was never good at math
    • I never had to study before, now I need to learn how
    • I get 100s on my homework but I fail my quizzes and/or tests
    • I understand what's going on in class, but when I do the work, I can't do it
  • Haven’t taken a math/science class in a while and are planning to take it soon
  • Need structured support
