The Mathematics Department provides services to students in two locations:
Mathematics Department services in both locations are coordinated by Brigitte Martineau, Mathematics Learning Center Coordinator and Kathleen Milligan, Mathematics Learning Center Senior Technical Assistant.
Professor Robert A. Fratangelo was a founding member of the Monroe Community College Mathematics Department; he was a dedicated teacher, humanitarian, counselor, mentor, friend, and confidante. In 1989, Monroe Community College recognized Professor Fratangelo for these qualities by making him the recipient of the Wesley T. Hanson Award for teaching excellence. He co-authored several college mathematics textbooks and inspired many students to become mathematics teachers. After his untimely death in 1992, the Mathematics Department renamed the Mathematics Learning Center the Robert A. Fratangelo Mathematics Learning Center in his honor. Students may obtain information about the Robert A. Fratangelo scholarship from the Mathematics Department office, 8-510.

|Study and Tutoring Area||11-204|
The computer classroom houses 32 computers for classroom instruction. This classroom was made possible through a grant from the Kilian J. and Caroline F. Schmitt Foundation in 1997.
In the computer classroom, each student is the center of instruction. The instructor serves as a tutor/mentor/coach/advisor/facilitator who works with individuals, small groups and sometimes the entire class. The instructor assists students with their learning, answers questions and supplements the online instruction.
Students may study in groups or alone. Textbooks and solutions manuals as well as scientific and graphing calculators are available at the front desk for room use only with a current MCC photo ID card.
Professional mathematics tutors are available to answer students’ questions on a walk-in basis. You do not need an appointment. We encourage students to look at the Suggestions and Guidelines for Tutoring before seeking tutoring.
Note: First week of classes: 11-204 is open, but no tutoring is available. 2nd -15th week of classes: 11-204 is open and tutoring is available.
There is a testing area for make-up tests and SUNY Learning Network courses as well as national and state mathematics contests. Students must present their current MCC photo ID card or a valid driver’s license in order to take a test.
Mathematics Appreciation Month – April
The RAFMLC hosts Mathematics Appreciation Month events during the month of April. Past fun and exciting events have included Games Day, The Amazing Math Race, Octa-Tetra Construction Hours, 4th Dimension and Hypercube Presentations and Origami Day. Please read the Student Tribune during the month of April for announcements of Mathematics Appreciation Month events.
There are 60 PCs and three high-volume laser printers available for students to use on a walk-in basis. On occasion, faculty may reserve some of the computers for class sessions. Computers that have been reserved will have reserved signs placed on them. Students are free to use any computers that have not been reserved. Instructors may give students assignments to complete in the computer room or students may choose to use the available software for their own exploration.
Professional mathematics tutors are available on a walk-in basis during limited hours for students in need of mathematics assistance while working on tutorial software or other mathematics programs such as Minitab.
