About the Quantitative and Science Center (Q&SC) 

Who We Are and What We Do

The College established the Q&SC in 2014 to help F&M students build problem solving and quantitative skills through peer-to-peer help.  With a team of nearly 50 peer tutors, the Q&SC provides many opportunities for students seeking additional resources to help master course content and enhance study skills.

Quantitative Skills

Basic quantitative skills, i.e. mathematical concepts and reasoning skills, are needed to succeed in F&M’s intro science, econ, math and computer science courses. Here we provide some self-help resources for several topics that students commonly find challenging.
