Quantitative Fundamentals Course Requirement
Incoming Class, Fall 2015

Incoming students are required to complete the Quantitative Fundamentals Course.  Please refer to your VIP page for deadlines.

Accessing the Online Course
  • Online Quant Fun Assessment

    • Register on the site to create personal user name, see Register Now
    • The system will request that you login
    • Once logged in see the left hand navigation bar and choose Coursepacks
    • Choose the Course Section and then click Run Course Section
    • Complete the Pre-test  for these four sections of the Quantitative Fundamentals assessment, Algebra, Calculus, Statistics, and Probability.
    • If your overall average is less than 75%, you need to complete the modules and take the Final Exam.
Scoring
  • For your convenience, you can calculate your score by using the following Quant Fun Score Calculator

  • After completing all four Pre-tests, you can calculate your average percentage to determine if you need to complete the online modules. Add up the four scores and divide by 4.
    • If your average score is 75% or greater from the four pre-tests, you are not required to complete the modules and are not required to attend the Quantitative Review Sessions.
    • If your average is less than 75% from the four pre-tests, you must complete the module information and take the final exam for each module in which you scored 75% or below.

Example:

Since the average of the four pre-tests is below 75%, students would work through the Statistics and Calculus modules and take both of those final exams.

Student A received the following pre-test scores:

Algebra          80%
Probability     75%
Statistics       70%
Calculus        60%
Average        71.25%

We recommend that every student work through all four modules, but in this case, the final exams for Algebra and Probability are NOT required.

Final averages will be calculated using the higher score between the pre-test and final exam of each module.

All students with an average score of less than 75% must attend all three sessions of the Quantitative Fundamentals Review Sessions.

In-Person Sessions

If you do not meet the 75% minimum score after completing the Pre-test and/or Final Exams, you must attend the in-person Quant Fun Sessions in late August and September.  To ensure the best preparation for students who are required to attend these sessions, they are limited to students who are required to attend.

These in-person sessions are hands-on and focus on working through problem sets together as well as understanding the material used in the classroom. You need to attend all three sessions and may choose to attend sessions at either the Sacramento or Bay Area campuses. Light refreshments will be available at both locations. Below you will find the schedule for the in-person sessions for both locations.

What opportunities, decisions, events have shaped your professional life?

My career path has been a climb across a jungle gym rather than a tangent up a corporate ladder. As a child, I used to thumb through the three-inch JCPenney catalogue, picking out the professional women who I would grow to be. I wanted to rule the world from a corner office in a suit and heels. I wanted to shed my humble origins and become Corporate Barbie.
