Description
Today’s university student has two pressing needs to be competent, educated, and competitive in the data-rich workplace: writing and quantitative literacy. Developing Quantitative Literacy Through Writing is a workbook of research and writing assignments that takes the student from posing a research question to critically analyzing journal articles, to learning basic quantitative and qualitative research, to preparing graphs and tables, and finally to writing a formal research paper based on the student’s own research. With over 40 different writing assignments, students learn to engage in a variety of information gathering activities, work collaboratively, problem-solve, explore, investigate, ponder, and learn. Topics of research are varied and interesting whether it’s doing descriptive studies, field observations, surveys, or in-class experiments, this is a great tool for the interactive classroom experience.
