6.001 Spring 2007: Getting help


For specific help with homework, see the Lab assistants on duty in the 6.001 lab. The lab is open 24 hours a day, and we will be adjusting staffing hours in the lab in response to student demand. It is to your advantage to start the problem set early, and not wait until the last night to do this. The lab staffing hours for the semester are:

  • Sunday: noon to midnight
  • Monday to Thursday: 5PM to midnight
  • Friday: noon to 6PM


Additional information about the lab staff can be found at: this location.

You can also email 6001-help@mit.edu.

If you need information on how to install and setup Scheme on your computer at home, here is some information.

If you feel that you are getting lost, cannot understand the statement of a problem, have a gripe about the way things are being done, or have any other problem that we might be able to help with, please get in touch with your tutor or recitation instructor.

Screams should be brought to the attention of the lecturers.

Problems of an administrative nature should be brought to the attention of the course secretary.

If you need intensive help, you can also request a personal tutor:

  • Course 6 has a Tutoring Program. If you are unable to access this web page (access is restricted to mit.edu), you can directly contact the Course VI Tutoring Program Coordinators - Xuemin Chi: xuemin@mit.edu.
  • There is also another tutoring program called TSR. Contact the Tutorial Services Room, Room 12-124 (x3-8406). Appointments should be made 48 hours in advance.
