Quantitative Literacy across the Curriculum: Integrating Skills from English Composition, Mathematics, and the Substantive Disciplines
Miller, Jane E.
Educational Forum, v74 n4 p334-346 2010
Quantitative literacy is an important proficiency that pertains to "word problems" from science, history, and other fields. Unfortunately, teaching how to solve such problems often is relegated to math courses alone. This article examines how quantitative literacy also involves concepts and skills from English composition and the substantive disciplines. The author outlines a systematic approach to writing the answers to word problems--a fundamental skill that applies to ongoing education, everyday life, and the workplace. (Contains 2 figures and 1 table.)
