Frequently Asked Questions
Which of the Quantitative Literacy courses should I take?
Which course you should take depends on your major. Quantitative Literacy courses by major.
Am I ready to take a Quantitative Literacy course?
Most freshmen have an ACT or SAT score to help place them in the correct course.
Is it necessary to start with a Quantitative Literacy course?
No. Any course for which a quantitative literacy course is a prerequisite will satisfy the quantitative literacy requirement. For example, College Algebra is a prerequisite for Trigonometry and Trigonometry is a prerequisite for Calculus I. Since College Algebra satisfies the Quantitative LIteracy requirement, then either Trigonometry or Calculus I will also satisfy the Quantitative LIteracy requirement.
