Quantitative Component

There are two parts to the Quantitative Skills component: a statistical part, and a mathematical part.

Courses that satisfy the (QS) statistical part should contain elementary statistics topics such as averages, standard deviation and other measures of dispersion, as well as interpretation of data, tables, graphs, and some probability.

Courses that satisfy the (QM) mathematical part must use a combination of algebraic, graphical, and numerical reasoning.

Courses with (Q) quantitative skills components necessarily involve the use of appropriate technology. Such courses should teach students how to translate problems into mathematical language, how to solve the mathematical problems, and how to interpret the solutions.
