Many students strugle with mathematics and need to seek help outside of the classroom. Here at LPC we offer a number of support services for students enrolled in mathematics classes. These include
- The Open Math Lab
- The Tutorial Center
- Instructor Office Hours
- Learning Skills courses especially for Math students
The Open Math Lab, located in the Integrated Learning Center (ILC), Building 600, offers FREE drop-in math help to students enrolled in LPC mathematics classes. Students enrolled in a math course with a TBA lab hour satisfy their lab requirement in the Open Math Lab. The Open Math Lab is staffed by full- and part-time mathematics instructors at LPC.
For spring semester 2015, the Open Math Lab will
open on Tuesday, January 20, and close on thursday, May 21. The Open Math Lab will be closed: for all school holidays and Spring Break. Special Finals' Week hours will be announced.

All full-time, and many part-time, instructors offer office hours. This is time the instructor has set aside to help students. Take advantage of this opportunity for one-on-one help from your instructor. Instructor office hours are published in the course syllabus and, for full-time instructors, on their office door.
The Learning Skills Department at LPC offers three classes geared especially toward students in pre-transfer level classes: LRNS 119A covers basic number sense and calculation skills; LRNS 119B covers pre-algebra concepts; and LRNS 119C provides support for success in Elementary and Intermediate Algebra. Consult the published class schedule to find out when these courses are offered. Contact Paula Schoenecker for more information about these courses.
