MASTER Math Lab

What is MASTER Math?

MASTER Math is Northern Virginia Community College’s developmental math program. It consists of ten units, taking students from Whole Number Operations through Functions, Quadratic Equations, and Parabolas. Students get personalized assistance when they need it and computer based instruction when they do not. They spend an equal amount of time each week in the classroom and in the Master Math Lab.

Campus MASTER Math Labs

The purpose of the MASTER Math Labs:

  • for campus developmental math students
  • there is always help in the lab from Faculty, Lab Personnel and Tutors
  • students can:
    • work on homework
    • complete quizzes and tests
    • view PowerPoint’s and videos
    • complete notes and turn them in for grading before taking quizzes
    • get help as needed

The Math Lab is serving students online only through the fall term 2020. We’re working via Zoom.

To access our support online please email us with the following information:

  • the course in which you are requesting help, 
  • your instructor’s name,
  • your EMPLID number,
  • the NOVA campus on which your course is offered (or NOVA Online), 
  • your phone number, and
  • a very brief statement of the problem with which you want us to help,

or submit the Math Lab Tutoring Request form. Once we get your request containing all the required information, we’ll reply with a password. Then, to access us:

  • Go to vccs.zoom.us.
  • Click on JOIN.
  • In the box that says Meeting ID or Personal Link Name, type 918 4873 1217 or zoom.us/j/91848731217

You will find yourself in a Zoom meeting, where one of us will escort you to a breakout room for tutoring.

Tutoring Sessions

Math Lab staff will be checking requests frequently throughout our hours of operation and should get back to you quickly with a password for our Zoom meeting. We need to limit each session to about 20 minutes to be able to assist many students. 

Special Instructions

While you’re working remotely:

  • You can get module notes through the MyLabsPlus (MLP) website. Once you’re signed in, go to the Main Menu and then to Document Sharing. Click on the unit for which you need notes. Scroll down. Near the bottom of the page you will see a list of notes and the PDF files for the PowerPoint for that unit.
  • Below the list of units are the words "multiplication table / formula sheet." Click on that link and scroll down to find links to the multiplication table and formula sheet. If you need those and you’re not logged in to MLP, you can find the multiplication table here and the formula sheet here.
  • You may find that you need to get started on a unit before your instructor has cleared you. If that happens, you can still get access to instructional materials. To get to them:
    1. Make sure you have the module notes.
    2. From the left-hand sidebar on the MLP site click on "Multimedia Library." You will get to a page that is organized by chapter and section.
    3. The chapter and section for the module you’re working on are stated at the top of the first notes page for that module. Enter the chapter and section numbers for your module.
    4. Select your media type. If you know what you like, choose your preference. If not, why not try a variety of media and see what works best for you.
    5. Hit "Find Now."

The system should give you a list of learning materials from which you may choose.

Note: MLP requires you to do a learning activity (PowerPoint or video or textbook) before you can start the online homework. If you have used only the Multimedia Library to prepare to do the homework, MLP will not recognize that you have done a learning activity. To remedy this, once your instructor has opened the unit for you, click on the PowerPoint or the video for the module you’re working on. Once you’ve opened it, MLP will allow you to access the homework.

Study Sheets

Check out our blog. There you will find study sheets on various Precalculus topics as well as on word problems. It's a blog. Not only can you read what we've got, but you can comment. Or request tutoring.

Questions

If you have any questions, email us at LOMathCenter@nvcc.edu (or reach out to your instructor).
