More about the Math Lab
The Math Lab is a tutorial center for students taking any mathematics course offered at the college. Students with all ability levels are welcomed by our staff of professional and peer tutors. Many full-time members of the Math Department spend an office hour in the lab each week and several part-time faculty members work with the staff to provide individual and small group assistance. The minimum math competency level required of peer tutors is calculus. Besides tutorial services, students are encouraged to use our media collection to augment class lectures. They may borrow retired textbooks for additional exercises. The Math Lab also has computers which include the general software a student finds on campus, as well as full Internet access. Software that is course specific has been installed to allow students to work with or without a tutor. During the first week of classes, an introduction to the Math Lab is given to each basic math class. This ensures that students in the MAT 090 sections are able to find the Math Lab and understand how it can assist them. Available services and rules of use are explained at this time. Students who begin using the Math Lab at this level continue to use our services through their math courses here at SUNY BCC.
