Mathematics Learning Center — FAQ

Where is the MLC?

  • The MLC (Math Learning Center) is inside the Library, first floor, on the left-hand side.
  • The MLC also uses room LLRC 116 for workshops. This is in the first floor back right corner of the Learning Resource Center.

What is the difference between Workshops and DLAs?

  • A Workshop is a scheduled class in room LLRC 110 or 116. Seats are limited to the workshops, which is why you must sign up for these ahead of time in the MLC. In a workshop, an instructor will guide you through examples and group work on a particular subject from your course.
  • A DLA (Directed Learning Activity) is a worksheet, with directions, that you complete on your own. After completion a tutor will review and grade your DLA. The tutors in the MLC can give you these worksheets to complete in our center any time we are open. Our hours are 8am-8pm Mon-Thu, and 10am-3pm Fri.
  • Workshop schedule can be found here.
