Julie Guelich Math Center

Math Center Location MapNOTICE: Starting Monday, March 30, the on-campus Math Center will be closed as part of Normandale's response to the Coronavirus crisis. Students currently enrolled in Math 0601/0602/0603 should contact their instructors for further information about their class. In addition, instructors and CLAs will be available for tutoring and other help via Zoom. See individual D2L Web sites for Math 0601/0602/0603 classes for tutoring/ALEKS help schedules and Zoom links. 

The Julie Guelich Math Center is the main classroom for nearly all classes of pre-College level mathematics, including Pre-Algebra, Introductory Algebra, and Intermediate Algebra.

Located in room C3045, you will find that the Julie Guelich Math Center is a large classroom with dozens of computer workstations and many study tables. It will accommodate most every student schedule since it is open more than 50 hours each week, including most evenings, and is staffed each hour by at least one College Lab Assistant, at least one Mathematics faculty member, and a student tutor.

Each section of a Pre-Algebra, Introductory or Intermediate Algebra class is scheduled for two hours each week here for students to work on mathematics topics independently or in groups, and with the tutors, lab assistants, and instructors.

A portion of your time will be spent using an on-line learning system called ALEKS (Assessment and Learning through Knowledge Systems) which allows you to work through needed mathematics topics in a personalized, student and instructor-directed manner. Students also meet once a week with their instructor in a regular classroom for problem solving sessions and other learning activities.

You can also study in the Julie Guelich Math Center at hours other than scheduled class time, making use of the tutors, lab assistants, and instructors, and are encouraged to use ALEKS outside of scheduled class time as well.
