Free, online tutoring for students in a consortium of public colleges and universities in New York, including UB.
Operation Mother Hen offers UB Engineering students a unique opportunity to review the key calculus concepts they need to know to succeed in UB's engineering programs. Streaming video clips provide a close-up view of Dr. Ann Piech's calculations as she works through problems from the course text for MTH141 and MTH142, the prerequisite math courses for all SEAS undergraduate degrees. Each problem has its own video clip, and the clips are arranged by chapter and section, so students can focus only on the specific concepts they want to review.
Operation Mother Hen is a valuable resource not only for students who are currently enrolled in MTH141/142, but for anyone who needs a quick review of basic calculus principles.
