Lab Viewer & Tutor Schedule
Students may access the Lab Viewer at the computer next to the front door. Upon entering a course subject and number into the viewer, a list of suitable tutors appears along with highlighting of their names in the lab’s tutor schedule.
Math Lab Computers
Computers are available for course websites and other math-related topics. Computers are outfitted with the latest Microsoft Office 2016, with the R statistical programming language, as well as web browsers to download or view class homework or quizzes. There are 12 desktops and 1 accessible workstation for students to use, available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Math Lab Lending Library
The lab’s lending library includes textbooks, student solutions manuals, calculators and lecture videos for select courses. All may be checked out at the Clerk Desk, located at the entrance to the Lab.
For check-outs, have your Student Access Card and know the names of your course, the author of your textbook and your instructor.
Please keep in mind that all of these items are for use in the Math Lab only, unless special permission is granted by the Lab coordinator or instructional assistants.
Once you sign up for the Math Lab, the check-in process is easy. As a student you come into the lab and pick an open seat. As you start to work through problems, you raise your hand to get guidance from tutors who circulate around the room. The tutor’s goal is to get you to a point of critical and independent thought so that you can be successful venturing on your own. This tutoring model is not 1-on-1 tutoring where you would sit for an extended period of time with an individual tutor to get focused help on one ore more topics. When space and resources exist (i.e., it’s not busy), often you can get more individualized help.
