The goal of the Quantitative Reasoning requirement is to ensure that every graduate of the College achieves a certain level of proficiency in using and analyzing quantitative information.
Quantitative Reasoning is the methodology used to analyze quantitative information to make decisions, judgments, and predictions. It involves defining a problem by means of numerical or geometrical representations of real-world phenomena, determining how to solve it, deducing consequences, formulating alternatives, and predicting outcomes. QR courses may come from a wide range of disciplines representing the natural and social sciences.
Students may fulfill this requirement by:
Advanced Placement (AP) courses may not be used to meet the Quantitative Reasoning requirement.
Courses used to satisfy the QR requirement also may satisfy other College requirements.
