Definition: the ability to identify, understand, generate, and evaluate logical and arguments quantitative information in order to use

them in everyday situations and related to their field of study. General Objectives: a. Use different approaches and mathematical methods for analyzing and solving real problems and to carry out relevant computations. b. Using graphs, tables, symbols, concepts and quantitative methodology in areas such as arithmetic, algebra, analytical or statistical information to represent and analyze processes and real situations. c. Interpret mathematical models and make corresponding inferences. d. Evaluate logical arguments and quantitative information in order to make judgments, draw conclusions and solve real-life situations in different contexts. e. Use quantitative methods to represent and analyze relationships between variables. f. Communicate logical arguments and quantitative results effectively. Quantitative reasoning skills general test For all courses that comply with the quantitative reasoning general education component, except Pre-Calculus and Calculus, the specific learning objectives by area of competence (as approved by a special Committee named to that effect) are:

a) Computation: Understand and use arithmetic, algebra, and statistics to solve problems that involve the following: Using the four basic operations with whole numbers, numerals, and fractions. Solving problems that require percentages, ratios, and proportions Solving equations and non-equations and being able to apply them Using Statistics principles to describe situations

b) Representation: Understand and interpret mathematical models represented by equations, graphs, and tables while being able to make inferences from them, and to solve problems that involve the following: Constructing and interpreting graphs Analyzing and visualizing geometrical concepts Applying measurement concepts

Using mathematical and statistical models to represent the relationship between the variables Analyzing situations that require quantitative reasoning making use of technology Representing functions graphically or as equations Interpreting and making predictions using the basic concepts of probability and statistics

c) Evaluation: Think critically about the use of quantitative information. Identifying quantitative relationships in different contexts, and being able to interpret them in their context and to communicate their interpretation Analyzing evidence, reaching conclusions, communicating, and defending interpretations Identifying the assumptions behind an argument that uses quantitative information
