Students know Evergreen’s Quantitative and Symbolic Reasoning Center (more familiarly referred to by the acronym QuaSR) as the place to go for math tutoring on campus. The center’s helpful staff stand by to help demystify mathematical reasoning, and to guide students through every stage from panic to understanding.
Although QuaSR supports students from every program on campus, the center has traditionally been seen as a hub for students in STEM disciplines. Recently, the staff have been making inroads to disciplines outside of the science and technology fields via an initiative called Math Across the Curriculum. This outreach has staff working with students in the classrooms to show them how math ties in with the subjects they study and projects they create. Beyond that, the hope is that students will become more comfortable with mathematical literacy; and to employing quantitative understanding to critical reasoning on a daily basis.
This One Minute Evergreen gives a brief glimpse into both sides of the QuaSR Center’s mission, both in the Library and in the classroom. Enjoy!
