UFV is committed to helping students succeed in their study of mathematics. The Math Centres in Abbotsford and Chilliwack are open at various times throughout the week, Monday to Friday. Students are encouraged to come to the centres for help with math questions. Videos are available for courses below the 100-level and for introductory statistics. Computer software, including versions of MAPLE and MINITAB, is available on centre computers for student use. Students may also sign out math books to supplement their course work.
For complete details on courses see the
course descriptions section. Students pursuing a minor or major degree in mathematics should note that not all courses will be offered every year. In order to increase the availability of upper-level courses, students should
take at least four 200-level Mathematics courses during their second year, and take an introductory statistics course such as MATH 270 in their second or third year. Students pursuing the statistics option of a math degree should take MATH 270 in their second year.
