Registration

To be able to use the Math Center, you must register for either Math 81, Math 82, or Math 83, depending on which math course you are currently enrolled in. It is the students responsibility to enroll in the math center. Students can not earn credits for time spent in the math center unless they are registered. Registration for the math center can be done at admissions or on-line.

Recording Login Hours

Only those hours that have been accurately recorded by the Math Center login computer count toward your lab total. You must login and log-out on each visit to the Math Center. Students who login but fail to logout are given a default credit of 15 minutes only, regardless of actual time spent in the center. Remember to log out of all labs when you leave because the login computer will not allow students to be logged into more than one lab at a time.

Space

Space at study tables and computer stations are filled on a first-come-first-served basis. Space in the Math Center may be limited at peak times. Note that late morning hours are often the busiest but afternoon hours are generally less impacted.

Computer Usage

Computer use in the Math Center is restricted. Computer use is limited to accessing math or statistics programs for assignments, quizzes, or any re-enforcement/skill building activities related to math or statistics courses. Computers may also be used to access Blackboard courses or student email accounts. Other web browsing or personal computer use is prohibited. Students using computer resources for unapproved activities will be asked to log-off and release the computer station to other users. Repeat offenders may be restricted from computer use in the Math Center for the remainder of the semester.

Tutors

Tutors in the Math Center are students like you; their math/statistics backgrounds vary depending on the courses they have taken. For more information on tutors in the Math Center, please visit our Tutoring/Math Center page.
