SLC Math Lab's Mission:

The Student Learning Center Math Lab fosters a friendly learning environment whereby students can further enhance their math education skills. Our professionally trained tutors coach students while maintaining the following principle: Demonstration (I Do), Participation (We Do), and Implementation (You Do).

  • Demonstration (I Do): A student will be shown by a tutor the various ways to which he or she can approach a particular problem in order to find a solution to that problem.

  • Participation (We Do): A student will be asked by a tutor to provide input and guidance as to how he or she might approach a problem in order to find a solution to that problem.

  • Implementation (You Do): A student will be given the opportunity to show mastery of what he or she was shown by solving a particular problem on his or her own without the assistance of a tutor.

Services Offered:

Lab activities for both credit and preparatory courses include tutoring appointments, review seminars, and problem solving sessions. Students have access to group and one-on-one tutoring sessions, solutions manuals, computer tutorials, and videotaped lectures in the Math Lab.
