UCFV is committed to helping students succeed in their study of mathematics. The Math Centre in Abbotsford, located in the Learning Centre in G-166, is open at various times throughout the week, Monday to Friday. Students are encouraged to come to the centre for help with math questions, and should check the schedule posted on the door, which indicates which instructors are available and when. Videos are available for courses below the 100-level, cassette tapes are available for introductory statistics, and computer software, including versions of MAPLE and MINITAB, is available on centre computers for student use. The Chilliwack campus has a combined Math/Writing Centre. Students who wish to get help with their math and statistics questions should consult the schedule on the door of Room 205 in Building A.
The Writing Centre works with all students enrolled in UCFV courses who wish to become more effective writers.
Centre staff work with student writers in one-on-one conferences on all aspects of academic and professional writing: understanding how situation, purpose, and audience shape the writing; understanding research and documentation; and promoting clear and effective use of language. Centre staff also offer other services: workshops and small-group sessions on aspects of academic and professional writing; and faculty support in the form of course-specific workshops and consultation on assignment design.
