Rocky Mount, NC - Principals from Nash-Rocky Mount Public Schools visited Nash Community College's new state-of-the-art pod-style mathematics computer lab recently. The interactive "math tank" is equipped with 54 computers for student use, three faculty work stations, four 70" LCD displays, two wireless tablets, two wireless touch screen controllers and a high definition video distribution system.
The College's developmental math classes are taught in the lab which is located inside the College's Alford L. Sweatt, Jr. Science and Technology Building. In addition, students may use the equipment for individual tutorial assistance, computer access, instructional resources and monitored testing and assignments.
"We wanted a modern, open and inviting space," NCC Mathematics and Sciences Department Chair Ginny Stokes told the group. "We wanted to remove barriers to student learning. Students come in here and know that they can focus on math. They don't have to wait on instruction. They can move at their own pace."
Math instructors demonstrated how to graph equations and use the calculator and explained many interactive features. Special features facilitate quick responses to student work allowing them to correct their work immediately or continue working through problems.
