This project focuses on two new math courses at MSU (MTH 101 and MTH 102) that seek to develop students' skills in quantitative literacy and its application to health, science, the environment, and more. In service of both pedagogical and curricular improvement, we aim to assess the efficacy of existing course elements, develop new curricular materials, and contrast these courses with perhaps more typical "math for liberal arts students" courses.
