This course will expose students to various aspects of quantitative reasoning, including the use of quantitative arguments to analyze problems, critique arguments, and draw and justify conclusions; the recognition and evaluation of quantitative assumptions; and the detection and interpretation of trends and patterns in quantitative data drawn from real-world sources and case studies. The course will nurture basic skills in numeracy, arithmetic, and estimation. In the process, students will learn to use algebraic and statistical methods to solve problems and understand changing quantities. They will also use visual and technological tools to assist with calculations and analysis. The format of the course involves 1 hour of lecture and 3 hours of lab-based active learning activity per week, emphasizing inquiry and practice.

Note: This course may not be taken for credit concurrently with or after any other 100-level MATH or STAT course or any course included in the College of Arts and Science Statistics Course Regulations lists. Students may only have credit for one of MATH 101 and MATH 150. In Arts & Science programs, this course may be used only in the Quantitative Requirement (if listed for that program) or the Electives Requirement.
