Quantitative Reasoning Across the Curriculum
QUANTiTatIVE REASONING FELLOWS PROGRAM
Quantitative Reasoning (QR) is the application of mathematical thought and knowledge to authentic, everyday issues; sometimes called quantitative literacy, QR is demonstrated by the inclination and ability to make reasoned decisions using fundamental mathematics. Quantitative reasoning skills are widely recognized as critical to academic success across the curriculum, as well as to broader goals related to personal and career development, and informed citizenry.
CUNY recently established the Quantitative Reasoning Fellows program, modeled after the WAC Fellows program that trains CUNY doctoral students to support efforts to improve writing across the curriculum at the campuses. The QR Fellows program places doctoral students at select CUNY campuses to support efforts to improve quantitative reasoning across the curriculum.
