Does being a grader matter for grad school?

Recommended Posts

Our math department offers opportunities for undergrad math majors to grade problem sets for lower-level math classes (up to linear algebra). 

Would doing this look good on an application to grad school? Or does it really not matter at all, and would my time be better spent studying?

If the position is just to literally grade papers based off of a professor's answer key, grad schools won't care that you did that. You aren't really learning anything by doing that. Studying to get good grades in your math classes is much more important! If you hold office hours and review sessions to actually work with and help students, then that's a different story, and I would recommend you take advantage of that opportunity!
