The Math Center is an open work area where students can work on math assignments with assistance available. Instructors, paraprofessionals, and student tutors will answer your questions and provide guidance for study. You can work independently or with a small group. We are located on the second floor (parking lot level) of the Library Building, next to the Writing Center and across from Peer Tutoring. You can just drop by with questions or call 651-450-3895 for more information.
Anytime you come to the Math Center for help, we ask that you sign in on the Math Center's main computer (to help us keep track of the number of students who use the center). If you're not sure what to do, just ask any staff member wearing the orange "May I Help You" badge. Your math class instructor also may request that you sign in on his or her clipboard to verify time spent in the Math Center for course credit.
Students may study and work on math homework while in the Math Center. Students can also work with math software in the Math Center's Computer Lab. Several staff members are available. Just raise your hand or ask any staff member with the orange badge for assistance.
Some math instructors have offices adjacent to the Math Center. You can check posted schedules to see when your instructor will be available either in his or her office or in the Math Center.
Resources for students
The Math Center has a wide variety of mathematics books that can be used for reference by students in the Math Center. There are also solutions manuals, study guides, tests and answer keys, and a variety of math equipment (protractors, compasses, and rulers) available for sign-out or on-site use.
Math videos and CD-ROMs are available for most math courses and can be checked out for two hours or overnight from the Library.
Several mathematics computer software programs, including Derive and Minitab, are available for use in the Math Center Computer Lab. These can be accessed via the Start Menu. A staff member can help you and explain the use of the programs.
Some instructors require students to complete a Gateway or Competency Test. If your instructor assigns one of these tests, see any Math Center staff member for details.
Peer Tutoring is located adjacent to the Math Center. Students may make weekly or biweekly appointments for one-on-one tutoring sessions with a Peer Tutor.
