Do you think you could help other math majors succeed in their math courses?
Helping Hands is a program created for math majors to connect and belong to a community of learners that have similar goals and whoshare the same academic program.
Helping Hands will promote students' communication with the mathematical community of BMCC and will help improve academic andstudy skills in order to succeed in mathematics and in college in general.
In the last 2 years, the number of math majors at BMCC has increased by more than 200%. As a math major, you are part of a thriving community - but what if you don't feel connected or welcomed
within the community?
If you have the skill to help your peers master difficult concepts in math courses, here is a great chance to connect.
Offer your services to Helping Hands as a one-on-one peer mentor! You will be matched with a fellow math major for the semester, working to enhance your mentee's experience with mathematics.
Or, suppose you have chosen to be a math major, but feel that you will need help in your math classes in the coming semester. You can apply to be mentored by one of your peers through Helping Hands! The two of you will meet every week throughout
the semester, to go over class notes and concepts and to review all quizzes and tests you take.
Everybody will benefit! Being an active participant within a community is the best way to succeed in that community. The best way to really learn a subject is to teach it - and another great way is to get one-on-one assistance from somebody who has gone
through the same experience!
You may need help for one semester and then be able to help somebody else in the next semester. And vice versa - you may be a great help to a fellow major in one course and then be in need of help for another course.
Helping Hands is the program that makes this possible.
