The Mathematics Department of Santa Monica College and the Math Lab are located in the Math Complex (MC). The department has full-time faculty members, part-time faculty members, as well as a student support staff who work together to serve the mathematical needs of the students at SMC. We offer developmental mathematics classes as well as the standard lower division (first and second year) college-level classes. Classes start as early as 6:45 a.m. and end as late as 10 p.m. We also offer accelerated classes wherein one semester students complete the material traditionally offered in two separate classes. SMC offers classes on its main campus as well as five satellite campuses.

Our Math Lab offers a range of free services to current students to help them succeed in their math courses.
