MTH 1010 Quantitative Literacy and Reasoning


3 Hours

This course is a study of familiar mathematical concepts in practical and interdisciplinary applications.  How much will my student loan payment be?  What happens when a large storm releases fifteen trillion gallons of water into an area?  How deep should the  groove be in my friend’s vinyl record to make the sound my friend wants?  Quantitative Literacy and Reasoning (QLR) addresses these questions and many more by connecting mathematical ideas to applications across the campus and around the world.  QLR introduces contexts for familiar mathematical content, such as proportions, linear growth, exponential growth, rates of change, and logic.  Use of appropriate technological tools ,such as spreadsheet software, will be emphasized in this course.
