On October 23, the College of Liberal Art’s Mathematics Department and the Math, Science, & Subject Tutoring Center celebrated “Mole Number Day” on the Alumni Quad. The date, which commemorates Avogadro’s number (6.02 x 10 to the 23rd power), is recognized on college and university campuses around the world. The number is a basic unit in chemistry that is connected to the measurement of molecules, or “moles.”
To celebrate, Woodbury students were invited to visit the Math, Science, & Subject Tutoring Center’s booth to play a disk drop game featuring furry mammalian moles. Students who landed on three moles won a Monte Mole Pez dispenser, while various combinations of moles and 10 (to the 23rd power) won magnetic games, stuffed animal key chains, and rubber ducks.
The Math, Science, and Subject Tutoring Center is staffed by student-tutors who can provide assistance to their peers seeking help in math, science and other subject areas.
