The Mathematics Laboratory, a division of the Barry University Learning Center, offers free tutoring and support to all students enrolled in Barry University. We strive to help students build confidence in themselves and to succeed as they progress through mathematics courses. We are located in Garner Hall, rm 107.
The most immediate concern for most of the students using the lab is to get help with homework assignments or with test preparation. Our job is to explain concepts, demonstrate methods, and make suggestions for improvement. It is important that students gain competency with the material and develop confidence in their abilities. Therefore, we do not do homework for students because we not have neither the time nor your instructor's permission to check completed homework assignments.
