# where do the student in the masters program for mathematics go to, like a typical classroom or meeting conference room for one on one teaching?

i noticed in the mathematics masters program at my University (UW), all the masters levels classes, there are only like 5 students, sometimes 2 students. where do they go to have a lectures with the professor? do they just meet up with the proffsor at his office or in a regular big room that is typically used for teaching 200 students in?

Jeffrey,

Although you may not have seen them yet, the university probably has some smaller classrooms. When I was taking masters' level courses, we used a classroom that sat about 28 students. It had tables rather than desks or lecture hall seating. With so few of us in a classroom, it still had that weird feeling. Not only that, but because the five of us sat scattered throughout the room, it was difficult for the professor to make eye contact. I spent a lot of time thinking how, if I was teaching such a small group, I would ask them to move closer together!
