Unlike high school math courses - Polya Math Learning Center allows students to learn at a pace and in the style that works for them.
There are two weekly participation requriements:
- A one-hour Focus Group
- Two and a half hours in the Polya Center
Additional coursework is completed individually and is available anywhere there is internet access.
During the weekly Focus Group, the leader provides students guidance on how to be successful in the coming week:
- study strategies
- important announcements
- explanations of current course material

During the required time in the lab the student will complete assignments online using MyMathLab. The lab is staffed by trained undergraduates, graduates, and faculty over 80 hours each week.
As the semester progresses and students show success in mastery of the material, their time requirements decrease.
