The Math Center's services are available Monday through Thursday from 8:30am to 6:30pm and Friday from 8:30am to 5:30pm throughout the calendar year and offers particularized support for the non-traditional student who is new to higher education or has been away from higher education for two or more years. Mr. Gene Thomas, Coordinator of the Math Center, trains students who are proficient in varied levels of mathematics to tutor in GER math courses and some upper level courses.
Visiting the Math Center
Do I need an appointment?
No. The center does not require advanced registration. 95% of our participants are walk-ins.
Is there a limit as to how often I can come in, or how long I can stay?
No. You may come in any time the center is open and stay as long as you like or need to stay.
Can I get one on one tutoring?
Although it is possible, most often one on one is only available during low traffic times.
What do I need to bring with me?
The center strongly recommends that students bring their textbooks and class notes. It is important that the student be able to identify some specific needs. It is difficult to assist students who state "I need help with everything."
Can I borrow a calculator for my class?
Yes. Calculators are available for loan provided the student leaves a valid student ID card or driver's license with the center until the calculator is returned. Calculators must be returned before close of business for the day. Overnight and weekend loans are not permitted.
Do you mind if I snack while I study?
Yes. The center does not permit eating or drinking in the center; however, students are welcome to use the FYE Lounge to eat a snack. The FYE Lounge is located down the hall from the center. Vending machines are located on the first, third, and fifth floors in the Grace Jacobs Building.
Do you mind if I take this call?
Yes. Cell phone conversations are not allowed in the center. Center staff will ask students to step out until their call is completed.
