There is a consultant on duty when the lab is open. They will be be wandering around the labs helping students or at the desk in 331. Please report it if no one is around Report It! (you will be asked to sign in)

MathLab Software

  • Mathematica 10.0
    • Free home use Mathematica for MTU students. (MTU log in required. Use the center log in form, not the one on the side.)
  • MatLab
  • SAS
  • Magma
    • Only on machines 21,22,23, and 24 in Fisher 330
  • C, C++, Fortran

Calculus Labs

The labs provide a hands on introduction to solving Calculus problems using the industry standard Mathematica software. The lab grade accounts for 10% of your total calculus grade and is based on weekly Mathematica labs and Canvas quizzes.

Talk to a consultant in Fisher 331 or contact the appropriate Course Coordinator via Canvas for additional information.

Calculus 1 2, and 3: Go To Canvas All lab information will be distributed through Canvas.
