Supplemental Instruction

Supplemental Instruction (SI) consists of regularly scheduled, informal, peer-led review sessions for traditionally difficult foundational courses such as chemistry, physics, and biology.

Students solving integrals

Virtual SI study sessions focus on skill-development and review of difficult concepts and are open to anyone in the course. Students work collaboratively with their peers to review notes, discuss readings, develop organizational tools, and prepare for examinations. The SI leaders attend lectures, meet regularly with the faculty and CAS staff, and are trained to facilitate the study sessions using collaborative learning techniques.

Check out the schedules in the drop-down menus below and save a PDF of this semester's SI Schedule to your computer for easy access.

Topics Supported by Supplemental Instruction:

  • Calculus
  • Chemistry
  • Physics

If you need assistance with a class that is not supported by Supplemental Instruction or one of the Drop-in Tutoring disciplines, please take advantage of the following resources:

  • Your instructor's office hours (you can also email your instructor to set up a meeting)
  • Peer study groups (virtual or socially distanced): research shows that students learn more when studying together
  • Academic Skills Workshops: CAS hosts several workshops throughout the semester that focus on a variety of topics, such as note-taking, time-management, study skills, etc. The days and times of the workshops will be announced in Alfred Today.
  • Academic Consultation at CAS: set up a virtual meeting with one of our consultants to discuss how to study more effectively, manage your time and tasks more efficiently, reduce test-anxiety, etc.
