Mathematics Learning Center

Helping students succeed in mathematics

For over 40 years, the Mathematics Learning Center (MSLC) has helped students excel in mathematics. Students will work alongside a staff of dedicated teachers and peer tutors and collaborate on solving mathematics problems related to their introductory coursework. The center also serves as a friendly gathering place for students. MSLC provides free drop-in tutoring by graduate teaching assistants, professors, instructors and upper-class undergraduate tutors.

During the 2020-2021 academic year, the MSLC will meet virtually.

The Virtual MSLC runs on Slack and Zoom. First-time visitors will need to log in with ONID credentials.

Daily hours for drop-in tutoring help during Fall 2020 begin Monday, September 28.

Math EXCEL Workshops for Undergraduate Students

MATH EXCEL workshops at the MSLC provide an opportunity for motivated students in introductory mathematics courses (MTH 111, MTH 112, MTH 251, and MTH 252) to work collaboratively on problems related to what they are currently studying in the course.

Students will attend two interactive MATH EXCEL workshops each week and earn additional credit on a pass / no pass basis.

Students work together cooperatively in small groups, actively discussing, sharing ideas and insights and supporting each other's efforts as they solve problems.

MATH EXCEL requires no extra homework outside the MATH EXCEL workshop sessions. Students are required to be on pace with the course material in order to be prepared for each MATH EXCEL workshop.
