Description:

In an era increasingly awash with numbers, how can one parse it all out? How is it possible to separate the proverbial quantitative chaff from the valuable wheat? Carleton College has taken on this weighty matter with their Quantitative Inquiry, Reasoning, and Knowledge Initiative (QuIRK). On the site, visitors will find sections that include Curricular Materials, Quantitative Reasoning Assessment, and Program Design. Some key resources for educators include "10 Foundational Quantitative Reasoning Questions" and examples of assignments and courses designed to teach quantitative reasoning.
