ISU Math Center (weekday) tutoring.

The Math Center is provided by the Student Success Center and the Mathematics Department for any registered ISU student needing help in undergraduate math courses or courses involving mathematics. There is no additional fee to use its services, and dual-enrolled Early College Students are welcome to use the Math Center.  In Pocatello, the Math Center is in REND 327 on the third floor of the Rendezvous Building, over the classrooms that face the library.  In Idaho Falls, it's in CHE 220.  The Math Center is not open during national holidays, fall break, or spring break. It offers limited tutoring hours during the first two weeks of the semester and during finals week.

Math tutors are trained undergraduate and graduate students who will help you understand math concepts by asking questions to clarify what you know and how the concept has been taught to you. They can help you to find mistakes in your work so that you can see what you have been doing incorrectly, and they'll work other examples with you and give you suggestions on how to approach the problems that you're doing.

Math tutors will not teach the course to you (this is up to your instructor), nor will they do your homework or tests for you.

To prepare for math tutoring, you should attend your classes and read your textbook. Then try the assigned homework on your own, so you can come with specific questions to ask the tutors and be ready to show them the work that you've already done. It also helps if you bring your class notes!

Resources.

Athletes and veterans.

The Department of Athletics and the Veterans' Sanctuary encourage ISU athletes and current or former U.S. service members to apply for math tutoring using University Tutoring's standard Tutor Request Form.
