Foundations of Mathematics and Quantitative Reasoning description:
Mathematics is a peculiarly human endeavor that attempts to organize our experience in a quantitative fashion.  It aids and supplements our intuitions about the physical universe and about human behavior.

The Mathematics and Quantitative Reasoning requirement is intended to give students an appreciation of mathematics and to prepare them to think precisely and critically about quantitative problems.


Learning outcomes are associated with each category of the Intellectual Foundations Program. For each learning outcome listed below, please describe how and where the course will meet each learning outcome. In other words, provide the Core Curriculum Committee a “road map” of where each outcome can be found in the course content and how it will be measured. Some outcomes might be readily seen in student papers or exams. Other outcomes, might be measured by projects, class discussions, portfolios, field experience, presentations for example. Your responses below need not be lengthy, but you should be as explicit as possible.

 

Learning outcome #1:  Students will:

  • identify and explain mathematical theories and their applications.

How and where will the course meet this outcome and how will it be measured?

 

 

Learning outcome #2:  Students will:

  • determine and apply appropriate mathematical and/or computational models and methods in problem solving.

How and where will the course meet this outcome and how will it be measured?

 

 

Learning outcome #3:  Students will:

  • display quantitative literacy.

How and where will the course meet this outcome and how will it be measured?
