Any student enrolled in a mathematics course at Temple College will be eligible to attend a mathematics lab. The main campus lab will be open at least 20 hours each week and will be staffed by the lab director, regular math faculty members and peer tutors. Labs in Hutto and Taylor will be open a limited number of hours as posted at those facilities. Hours vary each semester. Check with center directors for available tutoring at the Taylor and Hutto locations.
While every effort has been made to align our pre-requisites with the majority of major receiving institutions, it is ultimately the learner’s responsibility to be aware of his/her institution’s particular pre-requisites.
MyMathLab is used in most classes.
