About the MLC

The Math Learning Center (MLC) on the Fremont campus provides tutoring and supplemental instruction programs for all of our math courses, ranging from Basic Mathematics to Calculus, Differential Equations and Linear Algebra.

Math Learning Center Programs

Drop-In Tutoring

The MLC provides drop-in tutoring for all Ohlone math courses. Just log in on the Timekeeper computer (it takes less than 30 seconds), get out your work, raise your hand and a tutor will come and help you. You do not need to sign-up in advance or make an appointment. Our tutors are a combination of Ohlone students, Ohlone math instructors, and classified staff.

Equipment in the Math Learning Center

Computers

25 personal computers are available for lab work and research. Our computers are loaded with math software such as Maple, Matlab and Mathematica. There are also tutorial programs for some math courses.  Many courses have online learning resources and MLC staff can help you get started with these programs.

DVDs and Videos

Math related video lectures and tutorial materials are available to view in the Math Center.

Printers & Copiers

As of the Fall 2011 semester, student printing will use the Pcounter WebPay instead of GoPrint cards.

A $1 bill is required to initially purchase a GoPrint card; of that $1, $0.50 (50¢) pays for the GoPrint card, leaving $0.50 (50¢) credit on the GoPrint card. Students may add value to the print card with a bill; the GoPrint card machine does not accept coins or credit cards. The MLC does not have a cash register or change machine.

Printed pages and copies are $0.10 (10¢) per page for black and white.
