math center

The construction of the T. Benny Rushing Mathematics Student Center (commonly called the Math Center) was completed in collaboration with a renovation of the LeRoy E. Cowles Building that startedin April 2000 and was completed in December 2001 and was made possible through a generous donation from the George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Foundation. The Math Center is a sort of math haven for undergraduate students and their studies. Students can receive free tutoring for select math department courses, have access to a computer lab, and study in one of our group study rooms or independently at one of the individual study desks.

The center was named after T. Benny Rushing, who was a professor of mathematics at the U for nearly 30 years. In his tenure, he served as chair of the Department of Mathematics twice and led the College of Science as Dean from 1993-1997. A significant part of his effort in these roles was toward making the math center's existence a possibility.

The Math Center will open at 8:00 am on Monday, May 13, for Summer

Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis, although hiring generally takes place before the beginning of fall semester, and on occasion before the beginning of spring semester. Please complete the application form and have sent at least one, and preferably two, recommendations. Completed applications may be submitted at the Mathematics Department office (233 JWB). Applications for a learning assistant position can be found here.

  • To be considered for a tutoring position, one should have completed the Calculus series and taken at least one math class beyond Calculus.
  • To be considered for a computer lab assistant position, one should have a good working knowledge of UNIX and be familiar with the software frequently used by students in the lab, as well as a good math background.
