Red Hawk Math Learning Center
With the creation of the Red Hawk Mathematics Learning Center, Montclair State University has implemented an innovative, exciting and successful approach to mathematics education. The Red Hawk Mathematics Learning Center (RHMLC) is a mathematics “emporium” style computer-aided learning facility. Students in Math 061 and Math 100 will attend class at the RHMLC during the Spring 2012 semester.
Building on successful emporium designs at other universities and colleges around the nation, the RHMLC is committed to providing a superior learning environment by coupling advanced, user-friendly mathematics technology with personal, on-demand assistance from highly qualified instructors, graduate assistants and advanced undergraduate tutors. Courses in the RHMLC are designed to encourage active learning and problem solving skills as students learn mathematics most effectively when “doing mathematics.” Students will also have small group breakout sessions with an instructor and graduate assistants on a regular basis to keep them on target and to enable a stronger connection to their classmates and instructors and the material.
