The discussion focuses upon the remedial math lab at Alvin Community College, Alvin, Texas. The roles of instructors, lab supervisors, and peer tutors are detailed. The math lab program is flow charted and discussed in terms of procedures, materials used, and testing devices. An excerpt from a set of guidelines to math lab faculty is given to illustrate program organization at the instructor level. A basic math lab floor plan illustrates the need for flexibility. Positive attitudinal change was found with students using the lab. A bibliography and a list of 5 sources of software supplies is given. (JW)
