Saturday Workshop Series Poster


These are free workshop seminars organized throughout the Semester on selected topics students frequently have problems with. In these workshops, problems that aid understanding of the topic, and problems that are commonly found on the midterm and final examinations are tackled. Each workshop starts with a (roughly) 20-minute demonstration, with time in the middle for participants to attempt the problems and ask questions if/when they get stuck. The problems that caused students the most difficulty are then demonstrated for the last 20 minutes. Below is a list of scheduled workshop seminars for the semester, however, you can request for workshops on topics you have difficulty in from the MHC website. Please visit the Workshop page to find out about our offerings and to register.
