How do I effectively use Pi-rate Study Sessions?

  • You may attend Pi-rate Study Sessions at any time while it is in session. When you want to join the study session, simply click on the Zoom link on the schedule, you'll be taken to the Zoom study session and one of the Pi-rates will assist you or redirect you to a breakout room as soon as they are available.
  • To make the most of your time at these sessions, first try problems on your own and bring any questions you may have to ask the Pi-rates.
  • Have your class notes and textbook handy as these are helpful references for both you and the Pi-rates.
  • Reread your class notes.  If there was something during lecture that you did not understand, ask about it.
  • Do not expect to be able to start and finish your homework assignments during a single Pi-rate Study Session as this may not always or often be possible.
  • Do not expect to get individual attention the entire time you are at a sessions, other students may also have questions.  This is a great time to collaborate and share ideas with your peers!
  • The Pi-rates are here to help you succeed, not to do your coursework for you. Pi-rates will not do problems for you or just give you answers.    
  • Attend sessions with classmates so that you can share ideas and work together.
