All students admitted
to the College for the Fall Term of 1994 and thereafter must
meet the Quantitative Reasoning (QR) requirement. The goal of
this requirement is to ensure that every graduate of the College
achieves a certain level of proficiency in using and analyzing
quantitative information. Students may fulfill this requirement
either by:
 successfully
completing one course (of 3 credits or more) designated for full
QR credit (QR/1); or
 successfully
completing two courses (at least one of which must be of 3 credits
or more) designated for half QR credit (QR/2).
QR courses may
come from a wide range of disciplines representing the natural
and social sciences, as well as some areas of the humanities.
Quantitative reasoning
is first and foremost reasoning. It is not mathematical manipulation
or computation, but rather 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 realworld phenomena, determining how to solve
it, deducing consequences, formulating alternatives, and predicting
outcomes.
Advanced Placement
(AP) courses may not be used to satisfy the Quantitative Reasoning
requirement. Courses transferred from another college or university
do not generally carry QR credit, except in the following circumstances:
(1) QR is considered fulfilled for all science, math, and computer
science concentrators who transfer in the prerequisites; (2)
Transfer credit for Physics 125, 126, 140, 240 and any statistics
course receive (QR/1) credit. Courses used to satisfy the QR
requirement may also serve to satisfy other College requirements;
e.g., students who are working towards an A.B. or B.S.
degree may elect a QR course that also counts toward meeting
the Area Distribution, Concentration, or other College requirement.

to change without notice by the College of LS&A Curriculum
Committee.
