MATH 120 - Quantitative Reasoning


Credit Hours: 3
Lecture Hours: 4
Laboratory Hours: 0

Prerequisite(s): None

Restriction(s): None

Corequisite(s): None

This course is a mathematical application course based on the core units of numeracy, algebraic modeling, and statistics. Students will investigate how mathematics can be used to make sense and make decisions about various medical, environmental, and financial topics students will encounter in their lifetimes.  An additional focus throughout the course is on developing productive persistence toward working mathematical problems.  Topics will be studied in a hands-on group settings, where communicating mathematical ideas will be developed. 

Student Learning Outcomes of the Course:
  1. Students will demonstrate the ability to interpret and draw inferences from mathematical models such as formulas, graphs, tables, and schematics.
  2. Students will demonstrate the ability to represent mathematical information symbolically, visually, numerically and verbally.
  3. Students will demonstrate the ability to employ quantitative methods such as, arithmetic, algebra, geometry, or statistics to solve problems.
  4. Students will demonstrate the ability to estimate and check mathematical results for reasonableness.
  5. Students will demonstrate the ability to recognize the limits of mathematical and statistical methods.
