**about . . . MATH LAB (Math 52, Math 252, Math 380L, 120L, 194L, 15L, 25L, 30L)**

There are various Math Lab classes. If you are signed up for a

**Math**__, too.__

**Math Lab class**Math Lab is

__, but it is__

**not required**__for Math Students. Sign up for a Math Lab class to get extra help with math, all through the semester, practically for free. There are 1-unit versions and 0.5-unit versions and a 0-unit ("non-credit") version, which__

**highly recommended**

**is****free**for CR students. Use WebAdvisor to register.

Here is how the Math Lab works:

- Math Lab open hours are Mon-Thurs 9:30am-5pm and Friday 9:30am-3pm, starting on the first Monday of the semester and ending on the LAST DAY OF CLASSES (before Finals Week).
- Students come to the Math Lab during open hours to get help on a drop-in basis. The Math Lab is located in the Academic Support Center (ASC), which is part of the Learning Resource Center (LRC), which also houses the Library (in other words, Math Lab is in the “Library building.”)
- CR Math Faculty take turns working in the Math Lab, so you won't necessarily see the same teacher that teaches your class, but we have a weekly schedule, so if you go at the same day and time each week, the same teacher will be there (unless there is a substitute teacher, for some reason).
- CR students assist the math faculty at times. Usually these are higher-level calculus students.
- Usually students come to the Math Lab area, log in on the computer (for attendance records), and start studying and/or doing homework. When a student has a question, s/he raises his/her hand and a tutor comes along and helps for a few minutes. The tutors rove around the room, helping any students they can.
- Students should be working on math during the entire time they are logged in at the Math Lab, even if they don't have any questions. "Working on math" could be doing homework, reading the text, working practice problems, going over class notes or past work, or reading supplementary resources. (If you finish working on math and want to stay but need to work on other classes, you may stay unless your space is needed, but you should log out of Math Lab.)
- Tutors are there for assistance, but you are responsible for your own work.
- Math 252 is a "Non-Credit" Math Lab class, and the other sections of Math Lab classes are for "Credit."

*Which section should you register in?*Either (a) the credit version that "goes with" your class -- for example Math 120 students register in Math 120L for credit -- or (b) Math 52, for credit, if you are taking Math 50A or Math 50B, or (c) Math 252, the Non-Credit Math Lab class. Anyone can register in Math 252.- Use WebAdvisor to register in whatever section.
- Students should always log in when they arrive and log out when they leave, regardless of what section they are in. (We need these records to get money from the state.)
- For the "Credit" sections of Math Lab, there is a minimum required amount of time in order to receive credit. There are also some Math Lab assignments, because it is a separate class. To get credit in the 1.0-unit class, students need 45 hours of documented time in the Math Lab; for the 0.5-unit section, students need 22.5 hours. Those are minimum hours. If you accrue that much time and still would like to come to the math lab for help, that is certainly fine, and please continue to log in and log out for our records
- If you sign up for the 0.5-unit version, you can easily change to the 1-unit version later, but not the other way around.
- For the "Non-Credit" Math 252, there are no hour requirements -- you can get as much or as little help as you need. If you select this option, please register right away so that you are in the system ahead of the time that you need to use the Math Lab.
- Students are free to use the Math Lab area as a
*Study Area*even if Math Lab is not "Open" but students cannot accrue any time when the Math Lab is not open. - Occasionally, situations arise when the Math Lab must be closed unexpectedly. We try to avoid that, but if that happens, students cannot accrue any time until the Math Lab opens again.
- During open hours, all Math Lab students get the same help -- it does not matter if "your" teacher is there or if it is another teacher -- and it does not matter which section you are registered in.

- Math Lab is only open Monday through Friday on days when regular math classes are in session. Math Lab is closed during Finals Week (Dec 7-12) and closed on CR Holidays, such as Labor Day (Sept 7, 2015), the Veterans Day Holiday (which will be on Monday November 9, this year), and the Thanksgiving Holidays (Thurs-Fri Nov 26-27).
