Spinelli Center for Quantitative Learning

Courses in many departments, including economics, sociology, environmental studies and astronomy, regularly require students to analyze and draw conclusions from quantitative data. The Spinelli Center for Quantitative Learning supports students doing quantitative work across the curriculum. We offer tutoring, workshops and class study sessions outside the regular classroom.

“Being a graduate of Smith College opened all the doors I wanted to open. This is about paying back.”

Math Success at Smith

Many career paths and majors involve mathematics and/or quantitative skills (even seemingly non-mathematical ones such as computer graphics animation, journalism, or environmental activism). Math, like any other skill, can be developed through practice just like a muscle. Regardless of your current comfort level in mathematics, you can develop an individualized training program to build those muscles, and ultimately achieve your career goals.
