Quantitative Reasoning

Critical Perspectives: Quantitative Reasoning

A course that pursues at least three of the assessable student learning outcomes [listed below] may receive Quantitative Reasoning designation:

Students will:

* Apply logical and symbolic analysis to different kinds of problems

* Model phenomena with mathematical or logical reasoning

* Represent quantitative information in different forms (e.g., equations, graphs, diagrams, tables, text)

* Describe numerical data presented in different forms (e.g., equations, graphs, diagrams, tables, words)

* Use quantitative techniques to estimate or compute a result

* Develop appropriate inferences and conclusions from numerical data

* Critically evaluate key assumptions and limitations of one’s own work as well as others’ inferences and conclusions

* Use communication (written, visual, oral) to express a quantitative argument, inference, or conclusion
