The Quantification, Computation, and Data Analysis literacy enables students to apply mathematical skills to understand and solve real world problems. Students fulfill this requirement by completing two 3- or 4-credit courses that include some or all of the following:
- Theoretical concepts and structures of mathematics and statistics including (but not limited to) pure mathematics, logic, and theoretical statistics.
- Manipulation and interpretation of mathematical expressions.
- Application of computational and analytical methods in order to manipulate, organize, summarize, and evaluate quantitative information and experience.
- Theoretical and/or practical interpretation and communication of data in order to solve real-world problems
Note: this is not a Calculus requirement. Instead, students in the New College Curriculum can fulfill this requirement in courses across the College of Arts & Sciences (including courses in Anthropology, Math, Philosophy, Psychology, Sociology, Statistics, and more).
