One way to build a better future is to find ways to improve what we are doing now. That’s how the Math Achievement Center was built. Knowing students succeed when they feel confident and positive about their math skills, faculty from the math department sought a better way to build foundational math skills. By integrating mathematic computer technology, members of the faculty can spend more time interacting with students who work in small groups to solve problems.
The Math Achievement Center also serves as a learning lab. Students study at their own pace after class, taking on new material when they are ready. The lab is open until 10 p.m. most days, and with 400 students using the lab up to three times each week, it is not uncommon to have to push them out at the end of day.
