What should you expect from the Math Lab?

  • individual assistance working through math assignments
  • helpful, courteous, and competent assistance
  • improvement in your overall mathmatical ability after repeat visits

What shouldn't you expect from the Math Lab?

  • a service where we do all the work while you sit back and watch
    We strive to help you learn to help yourself!
  • a perfect assignment
    One session is often not enough time to address everything. Repeat visits may be necessary to polish your math skills.
  • flawless math assistants who know all the answers
    But what we don't know, we'll try to find out!
  • answers to all your math questions in just one or two sessions
    Improving your math skills is a process that happens gradually.

What else should you know?

  • Bring a specific math assignment to work on along with any ideas, notes, and any other relevant materials.  As much as possible, complete your assignment before seeking help. 
  • Be prepared to take an active role in your sessions. Let the tutor know what concerns you most and what you'd like to focus on.
  • Plan ahead. Schedule appointments in advance in order to be guaranteed assistance (especially during the final few weeks of the semester).
  • Contact the Math Lab if you are running late or if you need to cancel your appointment.  If you are ten or more minutes late for your appointment, you run the risk of losing that time slot.
