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 UCD (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
- Tutoring offered daily
- Access to math software including R and MatLab
- PC technology and graphing calculator support
- A computer instructional lab
