Excerpt from Syllabus

Take good notes in class and ask questions. Have at least one study partner. Read the reading assignment in your book and notes before attempting the homework assignment. Expect to study at least two hours outside of class for each hour of in class period. You can only learn mathematics by doing many problems yourself. So, Practice, Practice, Practice and more Practice!!!! Prepare for tests by reviewing constantly. Do not leave all your studying for the night before the test. And, finally, I am here to assist you, but you are ultimately responsibility for your learning.

Where does the library fit in MATH?!

Even math classes have assignments that can be completed more efficiently and effectively using library resources.

  1. Don't understand a formula? Look for a reference book, video, or ebook explaining it. Can't find one? We can help!
  2. Want to find resources for your paper or group project quickly? Ask for help at the reference desk in the library.
  3. Want some feedback on your writing, paper, or resources? Ask for Angel, the library's Instructor of research and Writing!
