Math Computer Labs

The Mathematics Department has three instructional computer labs and a state-of-the-art learning center, The Math Emporium located on the second floor of the library in Rhodes Tower 230, which are used extensively for numerous math courses.  The first three instructional labs, RT 1501, MC 435, and RT 403,  are not open-to-all, general purpose university labs, yet serve as the ideal classrooms for courses which utilize specific math software to enhance learning. 

Rhodes Tower 1501 is located close to Mathematics faculty offices.  It was first installed during the Summer of 1994 thanks to a grant from the National Science Foundation and has been upgraded recently to include 37 desktop computers and an instructor podium with full multimedia capabilities.

Main Classroom 435 consists of 46 desktop computers and a fully functional multimedia instructor podium similar to RT 1501.

Rhodes Tower 403 located on the 4th floor of the library has 30 desktop computers. 

In addition, on the 15th floor of Rhodes Tower in 1534, there is a small, 9-computer satellite lab for those times when students are unable to use the RT 1501 lab.

Beyond software provided on all university computers, Mathematics Department software includes Cabri GeometryII, Geogebra, Maple, Matlab, Minitab, SAS, SPSS, Logo, Fathom, MathType, MikTex, as well as ALEKS and MyMathLab capable web-browsers.

The main use of The Math Emporium, a 120 computer facility located in RT 203, is for students enrolled in MTH 87 (Basic Algebra) and MTH 115 (Applied Algebra), who will meet in The Math Emporium for all of their scheduled classes.

When seats are available, students enrolled in MTH 116, 117, 148 and 149 can use the Emporium to work on their online homework.
