Check-Outs

We now have a limited number of TI-84 calculators available to check out for the entire semester. Save yourself $$ and come get a calculator. They are available at the Learning Lab front desk inside the library, or, for online students, we can mail you a calculator, just call or email us. (308) 432-6382 or tutor@csc.edu.

Returns

Calculators need to be returned during finals week after your last math exam. If you are an online student, we can send you a prepaid envelope so that you can mail it back to us. Make sure and return your calculator; if a calculator is lost or not returned a $139 fee will be added to your student account to cover the replacement cost.

Self-Help Resources

Sometimes you need help at 2:00am, or only have a quick question, or a video is the best explanation. At these times it helps to know some of the resources available on-demand.

Subject-Specific

Writing

The Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL) is the go-to resource for college writing information. It is what our tutors use, and it should be one of your bookmarked pages.

Math

Our tutors recommend Symbolab Math Solver which solves math problems step-by-step. One note though, this isn't to be used to do your homework, but to learn how to do your homework.

Mathway is another site to help you work through math problems. It has a variety of online calculators for any class.

Did you know the Learning Lab has TI-84 graphing calculators for check-out? Contact us at tutor@csc.edu and check one out for the whole semester.

Chemistry

The Dynamic Periodic Table is great for learning and exploring the elements. Sort, select, and search the various elements for a world of information.

 General Resources

We here at the Learning Lab cannot recommend the Khan Academy highly enough. What started as one man tutoring his cousin using YouTube videos has become one of the best academic resources for students and teachers. While it is primarily geared towards math and high school students, there is a ton of information in a variety of subjects:

It is free to sign up and each subject is divided into easily consumable short lessons, videos, and practices.

CrashCourse is a YouTube channel, that was initially recommended as a great history resource, which it is, but also includes informative videos on literature, biology, ecology, chemistry, and more.


 Mentoring

On Track Mentors are available in the Learning Lab to help you succeed at college. Need some help with getting organized, finding motivation, or just someone to chat with? The mentors are here for you.


Study Hall

Some athletic teams and other organizations require students to participate in study hall hours at the Learning Lab.  Please sign in at the Learning Lab front desk, then depending on your coach or other leader's requirements, you may study quietly in the library, work with a tutor, or work in a study group.


Supplemental Instruction (SI)

Supplemental Instruction is extra study and review time for a specific class which is lead and guided by a peer tutor.
