If you feel a private tutor would be beneficial, please call the Department (434-924-4919) or email Connie Abell for a list of private math tutors.
New to the Department?
Welcome to the Department of Mathematics! Below is some information to get you started.
University ID and Computing: New faculty begin here: http://its.virginia.edu/guides/getstarted.html. Follow the instructions for acquiring a university ID and activating your email account. Software Central (http://www.its.virginia.edu/central/) provides access to site-licensed software that can be distributed to members of the University at no charge and with minimal tracking. Our local IT is Sara (116).
Setting up Direct Deposit: In order to set up direct deposit for your paycheck, you will need to have an account on the University’s Integrated System: http://www.virginia.edu/integratedsystem/.
Teaching: SIS (Student Information System) at UVa. Instructors use SIS to generate class rosters and submit grades. http://sis.virginia.edu/
Collab: (Online Collaboration and Learning Environment) Instructors may create course sites with official class rosters. We encourage all instructors to load their syllabus and other coursework on Collab rather than making copies. https://collab.itc.virginia.edu/portal
Books: The Department will provide instructors with desk copies for their courses. See Julie (218).
Graders: The Department provides graders for courses in the 2000-5000 level with good enrollment (> 20). Grader applications are held by Connie (216). You may search the applications, select a grader, and contact the student to confirm. The grader obtains a book from Julie (218) and sees Zvezdana (214) to complete paperwork.
Course Enrollments: Students enroll in their courses through SIS. SIS maintains waiting lists for courses and automatically enrolls waitlisted students as space comes available. Situations may arise when students cannot enroll through SIS and need a Course Action Form signed to put them in your class.
Scheduling Classrooms: If your classroom is not the right size or you wish to reserve a classroom for a review session, makeup exam, etc., see Connie (216).
Copying Exams: The Department has a Bizhub (203) and floor printers (313, 118) for printing. You should be able to print from your office computer to any of these printers. To use the Bizhub as a copier, you need to obtain the login/password from Julie (218). There is also a copier in the Library (107); obtain a copy card from Connie (216). Large print jobs may be sent to the Copy Center through Connie (216).
Telephone: To make a call within the University, dial the last 5 digits of the number (ex. 4-4900). To call outside the University, dial 9 for an outside line. To make long distance calls, please request an FAC number from Zvezdana (214).
Mailboxes: Everyone has a mailbox in the mailroom (off the Lobby on the main floor).
Supply Room (220): The Supply Room has paper, pens, chalk, toner cartridges, and other supplies. There is also a refrigerator, microwave, and FAX machine. You may check out a projector with Connie (216).
