In our industrialized society, driven by the advancement of technology, it is becoming more and more important that professionals, and even laymen, be able to think and communicate quantitatively. Even if an individual will not be required to do intricate calculations, they still need to understand those quantitative concepts in order to communicate on a meaningful level.
In quantitative reasoning (QR), you will learn skills within daily contexts. You will understand the power of compound interest or the uses and abuses of percentages. You’ll use fundamental statistical analysis to gauge the accuracy of a statistical study. You will apply the principles of logic and rhetoric to real world arguments. The skills taught in a QR course are driven by how those skills are applied to common quantitative problems.
