Bonus Self-Study Resources for Math

Need some extra practice outside of your regular class assignments? PrepSTEP is a Library database containing problem sets (with answers) and explanations. It's available to you online anytime, on or off campus!

Most Library databases require one login if you're connecting from off campus (For directions on how to log in, click here and then scroll down to Step 3.) PrepSTEP requires two. The first time you use PrepSTEP, you must register and create a PrepSTEP account. (For instructions, go to PrepSTEP > Help (upper right) > Video Guides > Registering as a New User.)

Once you're logged into PrepSTEP, click on "College Library" (near the top right). Then, go to Core Math and Science Skills Review > Algebra. There, you have access to...

  • Basic Algebra Practice Sets
  • Basic Algebra Tutorial
  • Basic Algebra eBooks
  • Basic Algebra Flashcards.

Math Movies!




Take a look at these fun videos in Kanopy to understand math better. Go to Subjects > Sciences > Mathematics. Try "Algebra: A Piece of Cake" and "The Secrets of Mental Math."

If you're off campus, you'll have to log in. (For directions on how to log in, click here and then scroll down to Step 3.)

Math Textbooks Galore!

The Library has many math textbooks. Current textbooks are in Reserves (2-hour checkout, use inside the Library). Older textbooks might be available for longer checkouts (ok to take home).

To see if we have your textbook, use OneSearch (on the Library homepage), or ask a librarian.

Also remember: Textbooks may be available to borrow from the Math Lab, upstairs from the Library (2nd floor LARC).
