The Q Project supports the development of mathematical, logical, computational, and statistical problem-solving skills that are required in quantitative disciplines across the Bryn Mawr curriculum, and by the complex challenges of our increasingly quantitative world.
The Q Project encompasses the Q Center, Q Mentors, QR (quantitative readiness) Placement, and QUAN (quantitative reasoning) courses.
The Q Center supports students who are doing quantitative work in courses across the STEM and Social Science disciplines. The Q Center is a collaborative study space that provides a welcoming location for individual work, study groups, and collaboration with Q Mentors.
All Q Center activities will be conducted remotely during the 2020-2021 academic year. Q Mentors will provide study support through virtual meetings. Students may sign up for appointments through the online scheduling system provided on the Q Schedule page.
Q Mentors are dedicated, passionate, and compassionate students whose interests span many disciplines. Mentors are trained to help students improve their problem-solving strategies, hone their quantitative reasoning skills, and allay their math anxieties. Q Mentors host virtual drop-in study sessions in which students may explore concepts from their coursework.
Q Mentors participate in ongoing training throughout the year to improve their interpersonal, coaching, and quantitative skills. Q Mentors are selected in accordance with their commitment to transforming quantitative study, exemplary academic record, and the recommendation of the faculty.
