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
