Quantitative reasoning represents the ability to reason and solve quantitative problems in a wide
array of authentic contexts and everyday-life situations.

array of authentic contexts and everyday-life situations.

Students will be able to create arguments or algorithms supported by quantitative

evidence and clearly communicate those arguments in a variety of formats (using words, tables,

graphs, mathematical equations, and computer programs as appropriate).

General Education courses that emphasize Quantitative Reasoning should show that they explicitly

teach this essential skill by dedicating class time to quantitative reasoning learning opportunities.

Assignments might include activities that require students to present information in a mathematical

or scientific manner, making use of formulas, graphs, tables, or other representations; look for

prevailing or recurrent patterns; find all possible solutions to a problem; collect data, perform

appropriate analyses, and draw conclusions; or solve application problems related to quantitative reasoning

• Convert and explain information between mathematical and non-mathematical languages

• Interpret numerical information

• Represent quantitative information in tables, graphs, diagrams, and other displays

• Use quantitative evidence in support of an argument or proposal

• Identify assumptions in quantitative reasoning
