The Dana Center Mathematics Pathways (DCMP) Quantitative Reasoning (QR) course is a college-level course designed for students who are focused on developing quantitative reasoning skills meaningful to their professional, civic, and personal lives.
Such reasoning is a habit of mind—seeking pattern and order when faced with unfamiliar contexts. This course uses collaborative learning techniques to help students recognize the need for data-driven decision making, and brings to light the dangers inherent in basing decisions solely on anecdotal evidence.
Mathematical concepts in Quantitative Reasoning include:
- Mathematical modeling
- Basic statistical reasoning
- Analysis of complex information using graphical strategies
