We as a Math Department at Dixie State University are excited to introduce the eLab, the Enhanced Learning of Algebra Basics computer lab! We are happy to announce that the Math Tutoring Program in the eLab is not only available to our lower level mathematics students but is now also available to ALL students in either a Math or Statistics course!
The eLab was created to help with the high demand and volume of students taking developmental math courses (Math 1000 & 0900). When it was first created it consisted of a large lab/classroom housing 92 workstations (66 Apple/26 PC) and a testing center with 15 machines to help with testing during the normal week.
After the first semester it became clear that there were not enough workstations to handle the high volume of Math students using the eLab (700-1500/week depending on the week and semester). So, the eLab has slowly but surely evolved and grown in size and now consists of 3 individual classrooms and a tutoring lab we current provide roughly 200 Mac workstations.
The eLab is located in the basement of the Snow Math and Science Building in Room 002. It is open six days a week with hours varying per semester and is closed on holiday weekends. Please refer to the Math Department Secretary for current hours and tutoring availability.
Being a wonderful place for all students in any math class currently using MyMathLab and StatCrunch to study, we have found students make use of the lab to work on homework, take tests, and get individualized or group tutoring at all times of the day! These courses include:
Math 0900, Math 1000, Math 1040, Math 1050
Math 1060, Math 1100, Math 1210, Math 1220
Having a diverse group of students in our Math and Statistics courses (from Freshman to Returning), we hire only the best to help! The tutors are our very own Math and Math Ed. majors-giving them opportunity to practice teaching and tutoring skills. They are all trained and excellent workers, being a shining example to their peers. The instructors of our Transitional classes also spend time working in the eLab allowing for more individual time with their own students. We facilitate individual one-on-one drop-in tutoring, group tutoring, instructor-based review sessions, Calculus group sessions, and supplemental instruction, as well as additional tutoring for Upward Bound (TRiO) students.
With Math being a challenging subject, we are grateful that we can provide this excellent resource for our students. We have seen great success in our program and hope to continue to serve our students at Dixie State University to the best of our ability!
Come on over to check us out and meet our wonderful tutors!
