Quantitative Reasoning courses are designed so that students will learn to recognize, understand, and use the quantitative elements they encounter in various aspects of their lives. Students will develop a habit of mind that uses quantitative skills to solve problems and make informed decisions.
Students will demonstrate mastery of the Quantitative Reasoning general education core competency by being able to:
- Represent mathematical, and quantitative information symbolically, graphically, numerically, and verbally.
- Apply quantitative methods to investigate routine and novel problems. This includes calculations/procedures, mathematical and/or statistical modeling, prediction, and evaluation.
- Interpret mathematical and quantitative information and draw logical inferences from representations such as formulas, equations, graphs, tables, and schematics.
- Evaluate the results obtained from quantitative methods for accuracy and/or reasonableness.
