Students must complete one Quantitative Literacy Across the Curriculum course. Within the framework of a scholarly discipline Quantitative Literacy courses will develop a student's ability to.:

  • State and evaluate important assumptions in the quantitative reasoning process (estimation, modeling, and data analysis).
  • Convert relative information into various mathematical forms (e.g. equations, graphs, diagrams, tables, words).
  • Make judgements and draw appropriate conclusions based on the quantitative analysis of data, while recognizing the limits of this analysis.
  • Express quantitative evidence to support the argument or purpose of the work (in terms of what evidence is used an how it is formatted, presented and contextualized.)
  • Make judgments regarding the appropriateness of a numerical answer.
  • Explain information presented in mathematical form (e.g. equations, graphs, diagrams, tables, words).
