Statistics Assistance Center

The Statistics Assistance Center (SAC) is a place where you can get help in understanding concepts taught in Statistics 251, 301, and 431. We can assist with lecture material, homework, quiz/exam preparation, and coding in SAS or R.

The SAC is funded by lab fees paid by students in Statistics 251, 301, and 431.

The SAC is located on the 2nd floor of the library. Follow the "Drop-In Tutoring" signs. Go straight after entering the second floor of the library, the SAC tables will be in the Drop-In Tutoring area to the right. ***Please note: The SAC is currently operating virtually and not in-person in the library.***

Drop-in Assistance

We provide drop-in assistance to students enrolled in Statistics 251, 301, and 431 at the University of Idaho. For Fall 2020, this drop-in assistance is virtual via Zoom.

Our primary focus is to help students understand material that has been presented in class. We work closely with the professors to ensure that our explanations are consistent with theirs.

Tutoring Schedule

Students are welcome to come in at any time with questions during our open hours. We do not take appointments. The SAC is closed during all university holidays and school breaks.

Please see our tutoring schedule to determine the best time to visit. If you need one-on-one assistance, please let us know. We can discuss the various options available.

Bring us your Questions and Homework Problems

To get the most out of your visit, be prepared with specific questions relating to class notes, the textbook, or homework problems. If your question is homework related, make sure you have tried to work the problems before you come in.

Checking Answers

To check your homework answers, you should see your professor during their office hours.

When you come to the SAC and we assist with a specific problem, we will let you know if you've done it correctly.

Drop by or send us an email . If we can't answer your question we will try to point you in the right direction.
