Welcome to the Science Learning Center at University of Michigan-Dearborn.

The Science Learning Center is here to help all students succeed in science courses and laboratories.

Fall and Winter Term Hours

All Science Learning Center services are offered remotely during Fall 2020

Our current hours are Monday - Thursday: noon - 6 PM, Friday: 2 PM - 6 PM, while classes are in session.

Modules cannot be completed after the last day of classes.

How to visit the Science Learning Center remotely

All Science Learning Center services will be handled remotely during Fall 2020

Science Learning Center Assistants are available to meet virtually via BlueJeans conferences during normal SLC hours (Current hours are Monday-Thursday noon - 6pm, Friday 2pm - 6pm).

  • For more information on how to set up and use BlueJeans, please visit the Getting Started with BlueJeans page.
  • To meet with an SLC assistant, please schedule an "SLC Study" appointment (see below), and BlueJeans meeting information will be emailed to you.
  1. Check CANVAS or our list of modules assigned for your courses.
  2. Start early! We have a limited number of appointments available on the due dates.
  3. Review the modules online before meeting with a Science Learning Center assistant. If you have questions or would like help with any module topic, feel free to schedule an appointment to chat with an SLC assistant about the module. We are here to help you!
  4. For each module, schedule an appointment to complete a post-test with an SLC assistant:
    • To schedule an appointment with an SLC assistant (15 minutes for most modules),
      • login to umdearborn.campus.eab.com, then
      • click the "Get Assistance" button and
      • select "Academic Success", then "Science Learning Center", then
      • "SLC Study".
      • In the comments, type in the one module you are scheduling for (e.g. A2 Intro to Graphing), or other reason for the meeting (e.g. help with algebra module). Schedule a separate appointment for each module.
      • Select your preferred date and time,
      • select "Any Staff", then "Confirm Appointment".
    • For each of the following module post-tests, you must schedule two back-to-back appointments, since they typically take longer than 15 minutes:
      • A11 Logarithms
      • A12 Transformations of Exponential Equations (you will need access to Google Sheets)
      • Algebra modules
      • C4 Ratios, Proportions, and Percents
      • Vectors 1
      • Vectors 2
  • If you have any trouble with the scheduling system, or need help making an appointment, please contact slc.scheduling@gmail.com.

About the Science Learning Center

We are here to help you:

  • Learn essential mathematical, graphing and laboratory skills before you need them in class. This ensures that all science students have the same opportunity for success in science courses regardless of educational background.

  • Practice using laboratory instruments at your own pace before you use them in lab. This allows you to spend laboratory time efficiently, and ensures that you can safely work with sensitive and expensive equipment.
