Math Learning Center

Welcome to the Math Learning Center (MLC) at MiraCosta College!

Math Students

The MLC is designed to help students in any MiraCosta mathematics class. Students are welcome to work on their homework in the MLC and ask questions when they get stuck on a problem. We have various staff in the MLC qualified to help with different classes.

Online/hybrid classes are taught with the aide of video lectures and computerized tutorials. These classes are geared for people who are self-disciplined enough to work on their own through the class. However, the MLC is here to help supplement your instruction in the class. The online materials you will need for your class are here for your use, and we also have a friendly staff that can help when you need a little more instruction.

The MLC houses textbooks and calculators for your use while in the MLC, and video lectures that are created to go with many of the textbooks we use. To check out materials in the MLC, you will need your MiraCosta ID Card.

The staff in the MLC does not work one-on-one with each student for more than a few minutes. If you would like a private tutor, the Tutoring and Academic Support Center offers this service.
