The Math Center offers:

  • a place to study 
  • peer tutors for free drop-in tutoring – no appointments necessary
  • solutions manuals and alternative texts (for some classes)

Tutors can help with all 100-level and most 200-level math courses. In addition, they can help with:

  • general math questions, even from other courses or subjects
  • math questions in computer assignments, even if they are not familiar with the computer programs themselves.

The Math Center is the hub of of the Mathematics Department.  The Math Club uses this setting as their home base. The majors enjoy time with each other, either discussing real work or real life, and the tutors welcome all others who would like to know more. Majors and non-majors alike use it as a valuable learning resource as well as a gathering place.
