All students enrolled in Math 95 are required to attend Math Lab once a week.  Ten percent of the Math 95 grade is based on participation and performance in Math Lab.

For the Spring 2018 semester: Students enrolled in Math 94 are required to enroll in Math 399: Intermediate Algebra which is held in Sierra Hall 1212 on Fridays from 10:00AM to 11:50AM. This Math 399 section will be in place of the labs and Math 95.

What is Math Lab for Math 95?

Math Lab is a computer room from which students can access the math program that generates questions to be answered by multiple choice. There will be a Math Lab Assistant in the room to help students sign in and get help. Students are encouraged to bring pencil, paper, calculators, and their Math 95 book to Math Lab.

The purpose of Math Lab is to help students build on the mathematical foundation that they have already established. *Math lab exposes students to several math concepts that may or may not coincide with the concepts being covered in their regular Math 95 lecture.

How many questions do I have to answer?

There is one homework assignment per week. Each homework assignment consists of three levels. In order to complete a level you need to answer three correct questions (they do not need to be consecutive). Therefore, a homework assignment only requires 9 correct questions as a total. Every time a question is answered incorrectly the program will generate question after question until three correct questions are accumulated within each level.

Where is Math Lab?

Generally Math Lab is located in computer lab rooms in Ojai Hall. The locations and schedule are established each semester. Please see below for this semester’s Math Lab schedule.

Who is in charge of Math Lab?

Math Lab Assistants run the math lab and are therefore the ones who provide the Math 95 instructors with the percentage points that each student earns. Please see a Math Lab assistant for any questions. For any further issues not resolvable with a Math Lab Assistant please contact the Math Lab Coordinator, Dr. Selenne Bañuelos, at selenne.banuelos@csuci.edu.

What is the role of the Math Lab Assistants?

Math Lab Assistants oversee the Math Lab, take role, grade off a 10% scale, and help students who need a hint towards solving a problem. Please check in with the Math Lab Assistant for the lab you attend for procedures regarding the Math Lab itself (for example, how to sign in and out with them each time you visit the lab). Math Lab Assistants will also help students set up their Math Lab accounts.
