The Mathematics Lab, 190C Brighton Lecture Hall, offers tutoring to students having difficulty in math classes. Lab assistants are upper-level math majors who are available to help upon request.
In addition, students may receive information and practice material for preparing for the PPST and CAAP competency exams.
The Math Lab is open Monday through Thursday, 3 to 9 p.m. There is no charge for these services, and no appointment is necessary.
The Department of Mathematics, Computer Science and Economics has two computer laboratories, located in rooms 245 and 246 of the Science Hall. The labs contain a total of 27 personal computers connected via a high-speed network to divisional servers as well as the internet. Computers in both labs are equipped with software to do symbolic mathematics manipulations, graphing, and geometric constructions. They are also equipped with computer language development software and application programs, such as word processors, spreadsheets, and presentation development tools.
The department maintains a wide variety of server computers that provide students access to applications software as well as serving as a resource for networking related courses. Servers include Solaris Unix, and Windows installations, as well as a distributed computing framework.
