Why?

  • You do not have the fundamental mathematics skills needed to apply economics to education.

  • You are therefore only getting a limited introduction to education.

  • Instead, we are going to have 2 different classes…


Wednesday mornings: survey of education in the united statesThursday afternoons: quantitative reasoning


Why?

  • This is the best of both worlds.

  • You will develop a rich understanding of education, and you will also develop the mathematical skills that you will need for life.


Themes for survey of us education
Themes for survey of us education

  • Education as a way to provide students with the skills they need for the labor market

  • Education as a way to make students into thoughtful democratic citizens

  • Education in the US context as a shared cultural experience for all young people

    Today, we will look at 3 pieces of media that will introduce us to these concepts.

Themes for quantitative reasoning

  • Think of this as critical thinking with numbers.
