Common Questions

The Math Center is located in Jordan Student Academic Center #2210.
If you’re currently enrolled in a math course, the Math Center is a good place to do your homework. If you have any questions on your homework assignment, a coach will be available to provide a guide. Having your questions answered while you are doing homework will allow you to finish your assignment in less time with less frustration. If you’re having trouble understanding the material that’s being covered in class, our coaches can provide you a quick review of the mathematical concepts. The Math Center is not a substitute for class. If you are studying for a test or exam, Math Center coaches can help you review material and concepts in preparation for your exam.
Math Center Coaches are graduate and undergraduate Gallaudet University students who are majoring in math, education, business, computer science, physics and other fields of study. The Math Center Coordinator, a full-time faculty member, supervises the Math Center.
Once you are in the Math Center, make yourself comfortable at a table. Many students use the lab as a place to do their homework, so it’s not unusual to see students quietly working on their own. If you have a question, don’t hesitate to ask one of our coaches. Even though they sometimes seem preoccupied with other things, our coaches are always ready and willing to help answer your questions. The Math Center is a place where active learning occurs. There are white boards where you can write down math problems and learn how to solve them.
Yes, we do have computers, but we do not have printers. Students are welcome to use these computers as long they are available. The best practice is to save your work often on your own memory storage device (USB).

This ensures the best environment to ask questions while studying. It also significantly reduces any frantic, last-minute cramming.
