What is the Math Center?

The Math Center is a walk-in math tutoring service 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.

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 will work other examples with you and give you suggestions on how to approach the problems that you are 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!

The Math Center is part of the Student Success Center. I, Pocatello, it's in REND 327 on the third floor of the Rendezvous Center, 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.  The Pocatello Math Center does offer limited tutoring hours during finals week.
