What does quantizing a force field mean?

    What does "quantizing a force field" mean?

    I've come across this in lecture multiple times and I can't seem to wrap my head around it. I've 'googled' those search terms but I can't tell if what I'm reading is what I am supposed to be understanding this term as.

    If it helps, we're talking about subatomic particles of the four fundamental forces, and this term has been used a couple of times.

    You will get the best response from the lecturer, stay after class and ask, or ask before class starts. The follow up questions possible with the lecturer makes this a no brainer and I'm sure your teacher would be glad to give you some time. You might just ask during class time as there are probably others who have the same question.
