Quantitative Reasoning (1015SCG)

Mathematics underpins and informs all scientific fields and is the language of science. Quantitative Reasoning is a mathematics course with a difference. Students will learn how to translate scientific problems into mathematical form, and how to understand and interpret mathematical and numerical results. With modern software, they will use case studies to learn how to apply mathematical concepts, from basics up to simple calculus, to real-world scientific problems.
