Operation Mother Hen offers SEAS students a unique opportunity to review the key calculus concepts they need to know to succeed in our programs. Streaming video clips provide a close-up view of Dr. Ann Piech's calculations as she works through problems from the course text for MTH 141 and MTH 142, the prerequisite math courses for all SEAS undergraduate degrees. Each problem has its own video clip, and the clips are arranged by chapter and section, so students can focus only on the specific concepts they want to review.
Operation Mother Hen is a valuable resource not only for students who are currently enrolled in MTH 141/142, but for anyone who needs a quick review of basic calculus principles.
Most departments have a list of tutors for hire. Average price is about $10/hour.
The Academic Resource Center is available to assist all CPMC students to reach their full potential, by providing high-quality support to students.
