The Zenas Hartvigson Memorial Math Education Resource Center

The Math Education Resource Center (MERC) Lab is a resource center for all students who are enrolled in a math course at University of Colorado Denver (regardless of the course level). The Mathematics Education Resource Center is dedicated to its founder and caretaker for 20 years, Dr. Zenas R. Hartvigson. Zenas was a tireless educator who established the Lab with only an Apple II PC and a few hand-held Texas Instrument calculators. We strive to carry on his tradition.

Some of the services offered in the MERC Lab include:

  • Prerequisite testing
  • Drop-in help subject to availability in NC 4013
  • Access to math software including R, MATLAB and SPSS.
  • PC technology and graphing calculator support
  • PC Computer Instructional lab
