School of Life Sciences and Department of Mathematics Tutoring Centers
The tutoring centers serve all students enrolled in MATH or BIOL courses, but are specifically designed to aid students identified as ‘at risk’ through either pre-test or mid-semester grade reports.
SCI 108: Developmental Mathematical Logic
Developmental Mathematical Logic is designed to aid students who are identified as ‘at risk’ in their mathematical skills. The course, presented by the College of Sciences and the Department of Mathematics, is not a remedial course but rather a course designed to teach students to learn math – the logic behind what they are doing and how it is applied.
UNLV and the College of Sciences in collaboration with CCSD invite the most competitive and highest GPA seniors to come to campus for a tour, meet with faculty and showcase our programs.
Service Learning Forums
The Service Learning Forums connects faculty, staff, students and community partners in an effort to network and create service learning opportunities.
