WHO WE ARE
The McKinney Campus Math Lab offers students free one-on-one tutoring in various math courses. The lab is staffed with degreed professionals and faculty to assist students enrolled in developmental math, college level math, and natural science courses that include math-based assignments. Tutors are available during all open lab hours when classes are in session according to Collin’s academic calendar. All Math Lab staff work diligently to demonstrate Collin College’s mission and core values. The lab is located at the McKinney campus on the second floor of the main building in room C220.

HOW THE MATH LAB WORKS

  • The McKinney Campus Math Lab is an open lab; no appointments are required. Our tutors help question by question but generally are not able to sit with students for extended periods of time. Please plan time accordingly to have all your questions answered. 
  • Students sign in and out of the Math Lab with their CWID.
  • Once students have their material ready, they simply need to raise their hand to let a tutor know they are ready with a question.
  • The Math Lab offers computers, graphing calculators, and head phones for student use. We also offer current editions of textbooks used in math classes, student solutions manuals, helpful reference sheets and on-campus printing. A student ID is required to check out materials for use while in the lab.
  • Students have access to My Math Lab, Connect Math and Web Assign.
  • Students have access to Mathematica.
  • Curriculum required software, programs, and apps can be downloaded to TI-83 and TI-84 calculators.

HOW TUTORING WORKS

  • Tutors CAN review and explain concepts already taught in class.
  • Tutors CAN help with homework problems and other example problems to help students gain mastery.
  • Tutors CAN help students review for tests.
  • Tutors CAN help students with study skills and note taking. We offer workshops during the academic year on these topics.
  • Tutors CANNOT introduce new concepts or teach missed class material.
  • Tutors CANNOT work lab problems but CAN find and explain example problems so students can relate and apply the mathematical principles to their lab assignments.
  • Tutors CANNOT help with take-home tests.
LAB RULES
  • The lab is a study environment and we ask that there be no cell phone use, loud socializing or video viewing without headphones.
  • Please only use covered containers for drinks and do not place them near the computer stations.
  • All students must abide by Collin’s Student Code of Conduct to ensure a safe learning environment for everyone.
 
WORKSHOPS
Workshops are free and require no advanced registration.  Our workshops are presented every semester and are included on the Anthony Peterson Center for Academic Assistance (APCAA) flyer. They are designed to assist students in a wide range of math concepts, time management and study techniques for college mathematics courses.
