Quantitative Literacy Center

Additional Menu

Numbers and mathematics play a huge role in our daily lives. They’re powerful tools—and they’re not as scary as you might think!

Coker College’s Center for Quantitative Literacy (often affectionately referred to as the “QL Center”) is committed to helping you understand and navigate mathematics, both in your classes and as part of our world.

The QL Center is located on the first floor of the Charles W. and Joan S. Coker Library–Information Technology Center. The Center is equipped with computers and graphing calculators, with student and professional staff nearby to help you as you work on homework or study. Open tutoring is available for all mathematics courses, as well as help sessions specific to MAT 100, MAT 101, MAT 203, and MAT 210.

The QL Center also sponsors regular events throughout the semester to help our Coker community build connections through the power of numbers. Check the campus calendar for upcoming events!

The Center for Quantitative Literacy is part of GoFigure! — Coker College’s dedicated Quality Enhancement Plan.

The Quantitative Literacy Assessment

During your freshman year at Coker, you will take the Quantitative Literacy Assessment. It will be administered on a Friday, in conjunction with your CC 101 course. This assessment is meant to test your thinking with regards to quantitative topics that arise in everyday life, such as calculating a tip when paying for a meal. If you do not pass the assessment when you initially take it, you may come to the Center for Quantitative Literacy to receive help studying relevant material, and also to retake the assessment. You must pass the QL Assessment prior to receiving a passing grade for your 200-level mathematics course.
