Our mission is your success
The Developmental Mathematics program emphasizes student success by building mathematical community among the students and instructors, with a careful eye on liberal education learning outcomes and student retention and eventual graduation.
Ways you can benefit from the lab
- Come regularly to do your homework in the lab, and then tutors and other students are right there to help if you have a question.
- Listen in and contribute questions when other students and tutors are discussing problems and concepts at the board.
- Ask us to help ”connect the dots” – you shouldn’t have to memorize formulas or procedures – let’s figure out the big ideas and learn how to apply them when solving problems.
- Get additional practice so you can master the material.
- Come review class notes with a tutor – we can help you go over your notes and fill in any gaps.
- Ask us to help organize a study plan for you for the course.
Become a tutor!
Tutoring is a great way to help others and help yourself bydeepening your own understanding of the concepts you are helping others to understand. Tutoring is also great way to get experience with teaching, working with others, and understanding a variety of ways of thinking about math.
Working as a tutor is a minimal time commitment (no minimum hours) with flexible scheduling to allow you to work around your class schedule or other obligations you may have. (Even if you can only work a couple of hours a week, you can make a huge impact!)
