Quantitative Reasoning

Core Quantitative Reasoning courses contribute to students' educational breadth and intellectual development.  They provide knowledge and skills needed in other courses and in the academic majors.   These tools are also essential for everyone living and working in an increasingly technical and technological world.  These courses are designed to sharpen students' problem solving skills, to enhance their understanding of formal reasoning and logical analysis, to strengthen their ability to use language and symbolic expression in a disciplined way, and to acquaint them with methods for handling quantified or quantifiable data.

Requirement: One first-level (QA) course and one second-level (QB) course from the lists below. 

Notes: Students should complete their QA course (with the Core grade of C- or higher) before taking a QB course.  The appropriate QA courses and any other prerequisites for each QB course are indicated in the Undergraduate Course Descriptions published separately from this Bulletin.

Placement into and successful completion of Math C075, C085, H095 or Statistics C012 or H092 satisfies the entire QR requirement. Students placing into Math 0076, 0086, or 0096 have met the QR requirement.
