Math Lab Director, David Anton
The Math Lab provides free mathematics assistance to UW students. Priority is given to students with questions related to 1000 and 2000 level Math classes, but we try to help with problems outside this list whenever possible.
Math Lab tutors are part-time instructors, math department graduate students, or well qualified undergraduates. At any time, there is at least one tutor on duty, and more are scheduled during peak times. Also, there is a good chance that people from your class are also in the Math Lab, so there is frequently some collaborative learning going on.
The Math Lab is informal. We don't make appointments, and you are welcome to enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and study for any of your courses in the lab. You may stay 10 minutes or all day. Come to check your math work, or to ask the helpers to guide you through a problem or a procedure. Maybe you just need to talk about a concept, such as "What is a derivative, really?" Math Lab helpers will try to accommodate your needs. The best help can be given when you are best prepared to receive it. Organize your questions and mark the sections in your textbook that you don't understand.
The Math Lab has 11 desktop PCs on the UW Student Network, and 2 notebook PCs on the wireless network. Since many Math classes have an online homework component, the Math Lab is a great place to come do your work.
