About the QR Fellows

Quantitative Reasoning (QR) is the application of mathematical thought and knowledge to authentic, everyday issues; sometimes called quantitative literacy, QR is demonstrated by the inclination and ability to make reasoned decisions using fundamental mathematics. CUNY, as part its educational initiatives in the quantitative domain, has created a Quantitative Reasoning Fellowship. This QR Fellowship is awarded to a select group of doctoral candidates with strong quantitative expertise. The central responsibility of QR Fellows is to support efforts to strengthen mathematical and quantitative reasoning education at the colleges by developing resources and supporting faculty initiatives.  QR Fellows at SPS serve as tutors to help support students in courses with a quantitative component, like those involving math and statistics. 

QR Fellows are appointed on an annual basis and bring various skills to the SPS QR initiative. They provide support to students at SPS in a wide range of mathematical concepts. Their mission is to help students think through and analyze math from a new perspective in both their coursework and daily lives.
