MTH 216 Week 1 Purpose of This Course and the Signature Assignment

What is quantitative reasoning?

Quantitative reasoning uses math and critical thinking to analyze numbers and draw conclusions relevant to our daily lives. Quantitative reasoning is practical and is always linked to applications.

What is the difference between quantitative and qualitative data?

Quantitative data refers to information that can be measured and written down using numbers. Examples of quantitative data include dates, speed of a traveling car, and the temperature on a thermometer. Qualitative data includes information that we acquire using observations from our senses. Examples of qualitative data include colors, smells, and tastes. This class focuses on quantitative data, not qualitative data.

What is a signature assignment, and how is a signature assignment used in this course?

Signature assignments are purposefully created to show evidence that students meet the major learning outcomes of a course or degree program. In this course, the Signature Assignment is a project that you will be working on in Weeks 2-5. The Signature Assignment gives you an opportunity to show that you can apply quantitative reasoning to a topic and scenario that you get to choose in Week 2.

What can you expect in this course?

Expect to learn the foundations of math needed to perform quantitative reasoning. You can also expect to learn the foundations of quantitative reasoning and apply them in a real-life scenario. You have a number of different support tools including videos, readings, fellow students, and your instructor to help you succeed along the way. Welcome to Quantitative Reasoning II, and enjoy the journey!

MTH 216 Week 4 Signature Assignment Presentation

This assignment is not due until Week 5, Day 7; however, we encourage you to begin working on this project in advance. Below are the details, which will also be presented again in Week 5.

The purpose of this assignment is to use skills you have learned throughout all five weeks of the course. You will be able to apply what they have learned to solve a real-world problem.

Create a 5- to 7-minute presentation that must include:

Introduction (approximately 1 minute) (CLO 2.1.2*)

Why does it interest you? How does it relate to life?

What should the audience learn from your presentation?

Visuals/Evidence (approximately 4 to 5 minutes) (CLO 2.2.1* & 2.2.3*)

Show your tables, scatterplot, other 2 visuals, calculations, and any other evidence to support your conclusion(s).

Discuss why you selected each visual and what you can conclude from the visuals.

How do these visuals support your conclusion?

Conclusion (approximately 1 minute) (CLO 2.2.2* & 2.1.2*)

How confident are you that your conclusion is sound?

What work would need to be done to increase your confidence?

Discuss what you learned from this project.

Include detailed speaker notes for each slide.

You are encouraged to attach a draft of your assignment to your faculty as a Private Message in Week 4 to your faculty for feedback in order to improve the assignment for Week 5.
