Subject Title
Quantitative Reasoning

Subject Description

This is a one term mathematics course designed to provide a comprehensive overview of a variety of mathematical concepts as they relate to various disciplines. It offers a general overview of topics including critical thinking skills, sets, systems of linear equations, probability, functions and graphs.

Credit Status
Required first level mathematics course for students in the Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies degree program; also a Liberal Studies Option (LSO) for Seneca degree students.

Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this subject the student will be able to:

• Demonstrate an intuitive understanding of functions by identifying the independent and dependent variables on given tables of values and explain the corresponding relationships.
• Calculate percentage change and average growth rates, and interpolate/extrapolate using these rates.
• Construct and interpret graphs.
• Determine the formula of linear functions given sets of data and interpret their slopes.
• Demonstrate understanding of the nature of exponential growth and determine their respective formulas.
• Construct Venn diagrams and use them to analyse and count outcomes.
• Calculate theoretical and empirical probabilities by distinguishing outcomes.
• Model and solve problems using various counting techniques, including calculating permutations and combinations.
• Solve problems requiring the appropriate use of elementary probability, the addition rule, the multiplication rule and conditional probability.
• Determine risk assessment by calculating and analyzing expected values.
