Quantitative Skills Programs

The Quantitative Skills Program supports the development of quantitative methods, concepts and questions across the Williams curriculum.

We are here to help make sense of numerical data and scientific concepts that rely on data. Though most of ourwork occurs in DivIII courses, students in Div II subjects such as psychology, economics, political science, and sociology also use quantitative methods in their statistical analysis of data

We work with faculty to provide a coherent infrastructure for STEM+ pedagogy and programming around the rubric of “inclusive excellence.

In particular our office works toward

  • Dissemination of New Pedagogical Initiatives in STEM+
  • Developing Reflective Practitioners – both faculty and peer tutors
  • Working toward a Collective Vision for Effective STEM+ Pedagogies

We are available to collaborate with  groups of faculty and individuals depending on their questions and needs.  We offer workshops each semester for faculty to think about their teaching or on development and implementation of course specific assignments/activities/programs related to quantitative skills..  We have facilitated ancillary quantitative skills workshops for students in their courses or
