Quantitative Reasoning

Students will demonstrate college-level skills and knowledge in applying the principles of mathematics and logic.

1. Perform basic arithmetical and algebraic computations.
• Addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.

• Use equations to find unknowns.

• Express quantitative results using appropriate units of measurement.

• Use size and orders of magnitude appropriately.

2. Use and manipulate quantitative information to draw conclusions.
• Reduce information to symbolic form.
• Draw conclusions based on symbolic manipulation.
• Choose appropriate mathematical/logical techniques to organize and analyze information using equations, tables or graphs.
• Move between written, symbolic, numeric, visual and graphic forms during analysis.
• Assess reasonableness of quantitative conclusions.
• Use quantitative techniques to validate conclusions.
• Construct abstract models of actual events that can predict outcomes.
3. Communicate clearly using quantitative information.
• Express quantitative conclusions in written, symbolic, numeric and graphic form.
• Assess which forms communicate most clearly to a given audience.
