Quantitative Reasoning Courses

In November 2011, the State Board of Education approved the inclusion of a "Quantitative Reasoning" requirement to all diploma types, among other changes. A quantitative reasoning course is a high school course that advances a student's ability to apply mathematics in real-world situations and contexts and deepens a student's understanding of high school mathematics standards.
