Math Center

The Math Center is a non-credit, Community Education class which provides assistance in mathematics as a completely free service.  Current Allan Hancock College students as well as other individuals who are 18 years or older may fill out a simple registration form and attend as frequently as they want.  Registration forms may be found in the Math Center or at Community Education in Building S.

The goal of the Math Center (sometimes called the Math Lab) is to assist students in the successful completion of any Allan Hancock College mathematics class by providing additional instructional resources.  The Math Center offers many resources, including one-on-one, drop-in tutoring by our staff of instructors and student tutors.  Please see the full list of resources below:

  • Free, drop-in tutoring
  • A place to study individually or in small groups
  • In-house loan of current textbooks and solutions manuals
  • A library of supplemental books and videos for check-out
  • Computers for mathematical purposes
  • Calculators, both in-house loans and semester rentals (View Calculator Rental Program PDF)
