DEPARTMENT OF MATHEMATICS COURSE INFORMATION SHEET FOR MAT101Q - QUANTITATIVE LITERACY II All members of the Math Department at Clinton Community College use the respective course template as a basis for their course syllabi. Faculty may, at their discretion, change the order of the course content or add course content. COURSE NUMBER AND TITLE: MAT101Q – Quantitative Literacy II COURSE SECTION: TBA CONTACT HOURS: 3 CREDIT HOURS: 3 SEMESTER AND YEAR: TBA INSTRUCTOR’S NAME, TELEPHONE NUMBER, EMAIL ADDRESS, OFFICE NUMBER, AND OFFICE HOURS: TBA I. COURSE DESCRIPTION: In this course, mathematical and statistical reasoning are explored through topics in everyday life. Students will integrate quantitative literacy with mathematical concepts such as percents, probability, mathematical modeling, and statistical thinking. Concepts are investigated with hands-on activities using medical, environmental, and financial examples. Near the end of the course, students will complete a comprehensive, departmental final exam. This is the second of two courses that follow the Quantway curriculum. The Quantway sequence of courses is intended for non-STEM (math, science, computer science and technology) students and non-business transfer students. After successful completion of this course, students can take MAT161 – Elementary Statistics. This course meets the SUNY General Education course requirements for the Mathematics Knowledge and Skill area. II. PREREQUISITES: PREREQUISITE: MAT100Q – Quantitative Literacy I or MAT100 – Introductory Algebra, equivalent or placement III. OBJECTIVES FOR QUANTWAY SEQUENCE: Quantitative with Multiple Literacies Goal: Students will develop their quantitative reasoning abilities through learning and practicing other essential literacies and reasoning skills. In particular, students will practice and make explicit connections with the following reasoning skills and literacies: L.1 Quantitative Literacy: Students will demonstrate the Quantitative Literacy “habit of mind.” In particular, students will: L.1.1 Demonstrate an appreciation for QL by reading about and discussing the importance of QL in the world both globally and in their lives. L.1.2 Show confidence in quantitative reasoning through perseverance in quantitative thinking and ability to transfer prior knowledge from one context to the next. revised 8/18

L.1.3 Check the reasonableness of quantities that have been presented to them or numbers that they calculate or estimate. L.1.2 Use correct units when using numbers based on the context. L.2 Critical Reading: Students will be able to read and interpret quantitative information from a variety of real-world sources. Students will be able to recognize and evaluate quantitative assumptions.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
