Knowledge Commons

Drop-in peer tutoring with the QRC available Sunday - Thursday, 7-10 p.m. in the Knowledge Commons

Our mission

  • To facilitate, encourage, and develop quantitative reasoning, skills, and applications for all students.  

We provide support with

  • Walk-in peer tutoring at all levels in all areas of mathematics, statistics, and computer science.  The QRC is a place where students can get help:
    • understanding an assignment
    • prepping for a quiz or exam
    • analyzing data
    • writing computer code
    • solving a problem
    • calculating and interpreting statistics
    • proving or applying a theorem
    • using quantitative software
    • designing an experiment
  • Students may also set up appointments to work with Alumni Fellow Audrey Block on Div 2 and Div 3 projects
  • The peer mentor will create a conversation with the student to uncover the student’s general understanding of the topic, if they have attempted the problems, and how they are struggling in their work. This creates a basis of support and a way for the mentor to brainstorm the best methods to offer the student help in learning quantitative skills.
  • The QRC will facilitate programming on mathematics and quantitative subjects, specifically focusing in programming that supports the Knowledge Common’s vision for creating more accessible resources on campus.

How to connect with the QRC

  • Walk-in hours are Sunday-Thursday, 7-10p in the Knowledge Commons (behind the APL). If students would like to schedule to meet with a specific peer mentor, they should email qrc@hampshire.edu for availability.
  • Please bring any text, worksheet, or assigned questions that you may be struggling with. If you cannot access a textbook or resource that was assigned, please email qrc@hampshire.edu before your session so we may locate the resources.
