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 lecture​s 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?

They usually use Math department classrooms which are normally smaller than the big ones you mentioned. Classes will be like normal classes, with just much less students. In some universities, they don’t have smaller classes, so they hold their classes in big classrooms you mentioned. It all depends on the university.

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!

They usually meet in some kind of conference room, or online because these ways are more interactive for master's students!
