QUANTITATIVE REASONING

Quantitative Reasoning

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Students are able to interpret quantitative information (i.e., formulas, graphs, tables, models, and schematics) and draw inferences from them.
  2. Given a quantitative problem, students are able to formulate the problem quantitatively and use appropriate arithmetical, algebraic, and/or statistical methods to solve the problem.
  3. Students are able to evaluate logical arguments using quantitative reasoning.
  4. Students are able to communicate and present quantitative results effectively.

Required: Math 106; or if the student has achieved an appropriate placement score on quantitative skills, one of the courses listed below.  Before selecting a course, please verify your degree requirements as many majors require a specific course to meet this requirement. (Students are assumed to have achieved satisfactory completion of the high school math required for admission.)
