ABSTRACT

We describe the features of a Mathematics Learning Center, equipped under a grant from NSF.

This technology-based facility has the primary goal of improving access for students, especially transfer students and nonmathematics majors, to mathematics courses at three possible levels:

  1. remedial,
  2. mid-calculus sequence, and
  3. as a bridge to upper-level courses.
