The IAC staff members perform a variety of background and ever-present administrative duties, and often work directly with students by stepping in as tutors and clerks.


Student Staff

Many Sac City students work in the Math Lab as tutors or clerks.  Math Lab tutors assist students in learning how to explore, solve and present problems, in the Math Lab and entry-level Math classes.  Math Lab Clerks assist students with Lab resources at the clerk desk, and perform a variety of clerical and other tasks that help with the Lab upkeep.
