Dana Center : Quantitative Reasoning

The Dana Center Mathematics Pathways (DCMP) Quantitative Reasoning (QR) course is a college-level course designed for students who are focused on developing quantitative reasoning skills meaningful to their professional, civic, and personal lives. Optional corequisite support materials are available and are aligned with each of the activities of the QR course.

Quantitative reasoning is a habit of mind—seeking pattern and order when faced with unfamiliar contexts. This course uses collaborative learning techniques to help students recognize the need for data-driven decision making, and brings to light the dangers inherent in basing decisions solely on anecdotal evidence. Mathematical concepts in Quantitative Reasoning include: numeracy, mathematical modeling, basic statistical reasoning, and analysis of complex information using graphical strategies.

This Dana Center course is available inside of Lumen Learning’s Online Homework Manager (aka OHM). OHM offers seamless LMS integration, technical support, and the robust features and functionality math faculty rely on to better support their students and gain actionable student performance analytics.
