Other Academic Resources at USNA
There are additional resources available for midshipmen desiring more help in specific academic areas.
The Mathematics Department provides on-line resources covering various topics, including math used in physics and engineering courses. The Math Lab, located in Chauvenet 130, is available to midshipmen to supplement meetings with their own instructors. Staffed by faculty members of the Mathematics Department, the Math Lab provides assistance in all core mathematics courses to midshipmen without prior appointments throughout the academic day.
The Chemistry Department operates a Chemistry Resource Room in Chauvenet 100. It is staffed by Chemistry faculty during the day and some evenings, and functions similarly to the Math Lab. There is also an extensive set of on-line resources for Plebe Chemistry.
Open to all midshipmen, the Writing Center exists to help those needing extra writing instruction or assistance with papers or other writing projects. The Writing Center is staffed by English department faculty members, both civilian and military, who are experts in composition and in working with students to improve their writing skills.
