This web site's intended audience (the you of these pages)
is the faculty and the graduate students of the Math Department.
The following facilities are solely for their use.
Undergraduate students enrolled in mathematics courses should use
Infolabs. The CIO's Office maintains this list of campus IT resources
Computers. The Math Department has plenty of high-quality computers.
Graduate students have a Linux machine in each of their offices,
and faculty members have their own computers in their offices. If you're a faculty
member and don't have a computer of your own, we (the Math Department's
friendly computer help staff) will gladly supply you with one for your office.
Graduate students and faculty may also compute away on the
workstations located in the computer labs in
rooms 322 and 101B (just above the Math Library), or use
the Windows XP room 205. The computer labs have a mixture of Linux
PCs, Macintoshes and scanners (attached to the Win XP PC and Mac in 322).
The linux, Macs and Windows machines have
CD-RW drives which you may use to make CD backups of your files.
Lastly, for those instructors wishing to incorporate computers into their lesson plans,
the e-classroom, room B107, featuring
21 fast Windows machines, is open for reservations. Check with the
receptionist in 213 to reserve B107. You can check out the key to B107
from the Math Library.
Printers. In rooms 101B and B127, there are HP LaserJet
Postscript-capable Duplex (double-sided printing) grayscale
printers for your use. At the end of the hall on floors 3 through 8
there are Ricoh MP C4501 printer/copier/scanners. You can find instructions
for using both kinds of printers here (or click on Printing in the Math
Dept in the grid above). Note that the Ricoh copiers are
capable of printing/copying/scanning in color. Color printing or copying
costs 20 cents per page with no free allowance.
You can print a total of 250 pages per month on these free of charge.
After that, using them will cost you 5 cents per page rounded
down to the nearest whole dollar amount.
Other Computer Equipment. The Math Department also has
two laptop computers, some portable computer projectors and
laser pointers which you can check out from the Math Library. Rooms
901, B223, B231, B130, B107 and B102 have ceiling mounted projectors. Come talk to us (see below) if you want
to use any of these.
Wireless Internet Service is available throughout Van Vleck
