The Quantitative Reasoning Center

(Scroll down for information on scheduling online Q Center consultations with a Q tutor)

Often students get to college and find that they may need some extra help in classes that are based on problem solving. The Q-Center is the place to get that assistance. Tutors are trained to help you develop good skills that will carry over into other areas of your education and life.

Get help with quantitative reasoning problems in:

  • mathematics
  • logic
  • psychology
  • chemistry
  • biology
  • geology
  • physics
  • economics
  • statistics
  • computer science

The Q-Center also offers review sessions linked to many of the specific classes  Ask your instructor about this resource. Appointments are not necessary for the Q Center.  Check the Q Consultant schedule for availability of tutors in the area you are seeking assistance.

Scheduling an online session with a Q Tutor (as of March 29, 2020)

Step 1: View the Q Tutors' new schedules here. (This can also be viewed simply by running a Google search for "depauw q schedule"). It is the same page as it has always been, but revamped for the current circumstances.

Step 2:  Once at the above-linked page, you can see this link: https://tinyurl.com/ubwwcjm . Clicking on this adds the ARC Calendar (Academic Resource Center; Q, S, and W) to your DePauw Google calendar. Importantly, in order to do this, you must be signed in to your DePauw Google account. The Q, S, and W tutoring sessions will then automatically populate your calendar.

Step 3: To join a Q Google Meet Session, you simply go to your Google calendar at the time in question and join the Google Meet. This is the same way many professors are hosting classes for the remainder of the semester. This has been done, hopefully, to make accessibility as easy and straightforward as possible. During a session, Q Tutors will ask students to help them complete a very quick online survey.  Within a few days following the session, students will be e-mailed an evaluation form to complete online.
