Check out the Jones’s Trick handout for a straight-forward guide that will teach you how to come up with growth rates for variables in a variety of equations.

Wondering where research happens at UVic? Other than specific faculty research, the map below outlines the key locations of research development. Consider using this map as a reference for starting your undergraduate research.

The Office of Community Based Research is a great place for resource tools, but perhaps the best place to start, and where you’ll spend the most of your time, is UVic’s McPherson Library.

Looking for an undergraduate research scholarship? Check out the Learning and Teaching Centre in the Hickman Building.

Finally, if you’re doing primary research, you may have to apply for approval from the Ethics Board, located in the Administrative Services Building. Happy researching!
