ARC Math Lab
"To FOIL or not to FOIL, that is the question."
Welcome to the Math Lab!  Here, you can find help with all levels of math, from basic mathematics through calculus.  Tutors are always available to help you with homework, projects, and test reviews. 

Want to work on your own?  The Math Lab also has computerized tutorials and fun instructional videos to help you brush up on specific concepts and topics.  Pop a video into the VCR, grab a cup of coffee, take a seat on our comfortable couch and watch these videos!

Math Lab Resources

The Math Lab has several videos available for checkout that coincide with the math textbooks.  These videos are helpful to students when they miss class or need more instruction on a specific topic.

The Math Lab also has many textbooks for all levels of math that can provide students with additional problems to work.  These textbooks may be used only in the ARC.

Calculator guides are available for students who would like to learn more about the graphing calculator.

Finally, answer keys for most of the current math textbooks are available for students to use with a tutor.  These answer keys help students check their homework.  Our tutors have access to these keys and are more than happy to check an answer for you.
