Our Math Centers
The math centers, located on the first floor of Glenn Anthon Hall, Building 4, Room 101 on the Yakima Campus and in the Main Building, Building 56, Room 102 at Grandview Campus, provide drop-in instructional support for classes from arithmetic through calculus.
Math Department instructors and instructional technicians provide individualized assistance to address students’ questions about topics from their mathematics courses as well as other mathematics-related courses. Help is also provided through computer/CD instruction focusing on concept development and guided practice. Resources such as calculators, textbooks, manipulatives, math-related materials, and supplemental written materials are available to students in the study areas of the center.
Having issues in a class that is not a math class? Visit the Tutoring Center or Writing Center to get assistance.
Why should I use the Math Center?
Wise use of your study time is important, since each new topic in mathematics builds upon previous concepts. If you spend a few minutes seeking answers to questions, you can save hours of time and frustration and be more successful in mathematics. Students often meet their friends at the center to study and prepare for exams.
In analyzing student success, we have found that students who use the Math Center are as much as 12% more successful in their classes than those who do not use its services. Hope to see you soon!
