Supplemental Instruction

Download the list of SI courses offered for the Spring 2016 semester.

Supplemental Instruction (SI), provides an opportunity for students to study with peer leaders. These sessions are scheduled for rigorous entry-level and core science and math courses from several departments. The two 50 minute peer-facilitated sessions per week for the assigned course are designed to help students develop course specific academic and study skills. Participants review course content as well.

SI leaders will share the strategies they used to be successful in the course, answer questions over lecture and reading topics, conduct review activities, give practice quizzes and conduct review activities.

SI for Science classes:

  • Biology 102, 104, 105 and 340
  • Bot 105
  • Chemistry 107, 109, 110 and 328
  • Phyx 106
  • Zool 110

For the first week, SI sections will start on the second day listed. Announcements are made in the target class and permission numbers are handed out by the specific SI leaders for each section. Seating is limited so attend as soon as possible.

SI for Math 115 classes:

For the first time, Learning Center and the Math department are piloting Supplemental Instruction for Math 115. Spring 2016 will offer 4 SI courses for the following math sections:

See SI course offering schedule page 2 for details.

Because this is a pilot, students will not register for a Math 115 SI course for a unit. Instead, participants are expected to attend SI twice a week for the semester. SI will fill up on a first-come first serve basis. Announcements will be made the first week of classes in the Math 115 lecture. Spots are limited and students may lose priority if they do not attend on a regular basis. Students who are interested in drop-in math support can instead use the math tutoring lab.

Supplemental Instruction for Biol 104 is generously supported by Associated Students.
