  • Another useful resource is the math gym, at LG102 and LG104 in Science Centre East Block: In LG104, our tutors will sit down with you on a one-to-one basis, and discuss your math problems. Appointments are available through this online booking system on a first-come, first-served basis. In LG102, you can find many individual study tables, as well as a few long and wide tables, where you can discuss math with your friends. Remember: math is not a spectator sport.
