Mathematical Sciences


Symbolic and Quantitative Resource Center

The SQRC functions as an informal resource for students by providing drop-in hours. Students may consult the friendly peer tutors on math related issues they encounter in any Lewis & Clark course. This is located on the bottom level of the John Howard Hall classroom building.

Student Study Areas

The Student Study Room is located adjacent to faculty offices on the 3rd floor of BoDine. It features four computers, a printer, several tables with chairs, a sofa, two blackboards, and a small kitchen for lunch. All of the computers are dual-boot Macintosh and Windows machines, with the most up-to-date mathematical software available.

Keck Computer Lab

In addition to the many computer labs around campus, the Mathematical Sciences Department has two Linux based labs in Olin 305 and 309, thanks to a generous grant from the Keck Foundation. All the computers in the labs were replaced in either  2014 or  2016. They are located in the Olin Center for Physics and Chemistry.

Faculty Members

The faculty members are the best possible resource for the students. The department has an “open-door” policy. Students are welcomed and encouraged to ask questions and seek answers from the mathematical sciences faculty.


Many students use this student study room for group homework sessions. Professors are always nearby to help.
