I am trying to learn the theory/implementation of wavelet transforms, starting here
I cannot load "quadchirp" because file not found. I tried some other defaul data files such as sunspot.dat and it works. Where is this quadchirp file?

If you listed the entire result from running the ver function, it seems that you do not have the Wavelet Toolbox.

Ahh you're right... the linked page said I need signal processing toolbox, but I neglected the actual toolbox for the wavelet... which is what I'm trying to learn
So when I first downloaded Matlab I grabbed all those listed toolboxes expecting to use them at some point. I'm using an institutional license. Do you know how I can go back to add wavelet somehow? I don't have to buy it do I?

I’m not certain how institutional licenses work, since I never used MATLAB as part of one.
Your best option is to ask the license administrator how to download and install the Wavelet Toolbox.
Wavelets are interesting and quite useful, so you’ll enjoy exploring them!
