require quantitative reasoning. Topics include the meaning of probabilities, how to

read, critique, and apply statistical information found in news reports, public policy

debates, consumer reports, and other daily life and professional situations; the use of

mathematical models in describing, understanding, and making predictions about real

world phenomena; and the mathematics of loans and investments. Other topics may be
