The UAB Math Learning Lab (MLL) is a computer lab where students enrolled in MA 094, 098, 102, 105, 106, 107, 110, 125, 126, 180, 227, and 418 at UAB can receive assistance in addition to the instruction they get in class and lab meetings. The MLL is staffed by graduate students in mathematics, but it is not a traditional tutoring lab.

Instead of just showing you how to work problems, the tutors encourage you to actively learn mathematics by “doing” mathematics and working to find solutions to problems on your own. Our tutors are trained to guide you by asking questions about your understanding and thinking. Our goal is to help you learn to think for yourself and become a better problem-solver.

There are certain designated tutors for MA 180, MA 418, and Calculus. See their availability on the Calculus/MA 180 tutoring schedule.
