Student Support Services
The Mathematics Department provides free tutoring support for all students who are enrolled in math courses at OCC. Students receive help either on a walk-in basis or by making an appointment with a tutor. The Math Lab is committed to providing an atmosphere conducive to reducing math anxiety and to building confidence in math problem-solving abilities
In addition to tutoring services, the Math Lab provides individual study space, group study space, computers with math software, and a testing area.
Mathematics Diagnostic Center
The Math Diagnostic Program provides individualized study plans for students who lack required mathematics skills. The main purpose of the program is to provide students with the opportunity to reduce time needed to refresh their math skills. Students may be referred as a result of their OCC math placement test, by their instructor or by a counselor. Any student who would like further evaluation of his or her math skills may make an appointment.
Students who may benefit include those who place in a Pre-Algebra, Beginning Algebra, or Intermediate Algebra course; those who are dissatisfied with the results of their placement test; those who are preparing for health-related fields; those who are having difficulty in credit-level mathematics courses; and those who are having difficulty in courses that require problem-solving skills.
