Goal: Preparation for Quantway

The goal of Fundamentals is to bolster students’ proficiency in the prerequisite mathematical skills and understanding, such as basic arithmetic, needed for success in Quantway Core.

Learning Outcomes

The learning outcomes cover fundamental mathematics and pre-algebra, which students need to succeed in the Pathways, including all major topics from arithmetic, algebra, and numeracy.


This offering consists of an online pool of lessons and practice problems from which faculty can construct their own course (stand-alone or corequisite), depending on their desired learning objectives and student needs.


This offering is designed to be flexible. For example, it could be administered as:

  1. a stand-alone, prerequisite course to Quantway Core, with 1-3 contact hours, or
  2. a corequisite taught in conjunction with Quantway Core, with 1-3 contact hours.
