 The Truman Math Center & CIS Lab at Truman College

Mark Carter, Coordinator
Andrew Kerr, Faculty Director

The Math Center and CIS Lab will open for the Fall semester on Monday, August 30th.  

We are currently planning to offer online tutoring throughout the semester. We are also planning to offer in-person sessions, but they will likely start a few weeks into the semester. 

All updates will be posted here, as soon as they are available. 

For all information about the Virtual Math Center and CIS Lab, as well as Truman's other Virtual Tutoring Centers, please visit the main Academic Support Services page:         

We are an academic support group that offers a comprehensive list of resources to help students succeed in their mathematics courses and studies. Among such offered resources include tutoring staff composed of adjunct instructors and accomplished students. 
Additionally, the staff provide workshops on a variety of topics suggested and led by students/faculty/staff. These workshops are typically organized according to class and course level and are ultimately to serve students needs.​
The Math Center/CIS consists of computers for online homework, calculators, and textbooks aligned with courses. Students may borrow textbooks and calculators for use on site.                                                      

Tutoring at the Math Center                                                       
  • ​Any CCC student in any mathematics course level- from Foundational Studies to Ordinary Differential Equations- may walk in for help. This is a drop-in space.
  • An hour long one-on-ones appointments for developmental level students (FS,90,98,99). Students thus served can book up to two appointments per week.
  • The platform the Center prefers and urges is group study, featuring students engaged with common problems, guided by staff.

Newest Addition to the Family                                         
As of 2018, we are also proud to be hosts to the CIS Lab. Provisioned with some of our finest CIS and Business faculty and staff, we have no doubt that our CIS Lab will help our center shine ever the brighter.
Similar to the math services, we offer CIS and Business students their needed resources such as computers and text books to be used on site.                                         
Tutoring at the CIS Lab                                           
  • Any CCC student taking CIS and/or Business classes.​ 
  • Assistance in MS Office Suite (Word, Excel, Power Point, and Access).
  • Any CCC taking a college credit course in need of  general computer help.
  • An hour long one-on-one appointments for students taking business 111, 181, and 182. Students thus served can book up to two appointments per week.
  • Assistance with MLA formatting for research papers, charts & graphs, and presentations.      
We expect students to share the open space of the Math Center and CIS Lab with all who enter. You will work and learn with and among your peers. The Center staff moves freely about, offering help when asked for about twenty minutes at a time (walk-in basis​), in focused mini-sessions. The Center welcomes you to its mathematics commons. We are confident you'll enjoy the experience and contribute to it.                                                     
Pre-Semester Workshops
​​Before the semester begins, the Math Center hosts workshops to prepare students for their perspective courses.
Math students enrolled in math 140, 141, 143, and 207 can attend said workshops to be better prepared for
their respective courses. Each workshop is an hour long session, and content will vary from day to day.

Special Events                                            
In spirit of competition and mental exercise, the Math Center will be regularly hosting special events and or                                            
promotions. For example, in the 2016 spring term, the Math Center raffled off a TI-84 graphing calculator with all                                           
the trimmings. Currently we offer prizes for students that participate in the Math Center Contest and Challenge                                           
Problem of the Week. For more information, please visit the Math Center & CIS Lab.                                           

So stay tuned for future events hosted by the Truman Math Center.
