The math department runs a free tutoring service called Calculus Cavalry. Drop in help is available for students in Math 125, 141, 161, 162, 165, 166, and 263. Times and modalities will be determined by the end of the first week of classes.
Some mathematics instructors at Lafayette utilize WeBWorK, an open-source online homework system for mathematics and sciences courses, supported by the Mathematical Association of America and the National Science Foundation. Visit the WebWork website for general information about the system, and the WeBWork website for Lafayette’s own course sites.
The department maintains a computer lab with computers running Mathematica, MATLAB, TeX, J, R, Geogebra and a variety of other mathematically useful software. The computers also have Microsoft Office and C/C++ & Java development environments. Lab hours vary each semester but are typically open weeknight evenings. ITS is preparing a plan for students to have access to lab software remotely.
