Mathematics

All winter and spring 2021 classes will continue to be offered only in online and remote environments. "Online" classes are held in a traditional online environment, allowing students to log in on their own schedule. "Remote" classes meet via teleconference at specific times, and students must attend at those times; students will receive login information and instructions after they register. If you come to campus, please note that face masks must be worn inside all FIT facilities and other social distancing measures are in effect; review the Health and Safety guidelines on the FIT website before coming to campus.
