Additional Research
During final exams in the spring of 1988 several teachers passed out a
voluntary survey to students after their course exam.
One hundred twentytwo students filled out the surveys but not all answered all the
questions. Here is a summary of the attitudes reflected on this survey:

107 / 115 (93%) said they enjoyed going to the math lab
at least “sometimes”
90 / 112 (78%) said that they enjoyed going to the math lab
with no qualification.
119 / 122 (98%) said that the math lab helped them understand
at least a little better.
65 / 122 (53%) said that the math lab helped them understand
“a lot."
97% responded that they thought other school should have such a lab.
