Quantitative Reasoning

Introduction

We’re so glad that you’re working to expand the wide world of OER Quantitative Reasoning materials. As you know, math is a very rewarding subject to teach, as it can be approached so many ways. This variety means that though many OER materials already exist for Quantitative Reasoning , there’s no one-size-fits-all solution in place. Even if you find a template course you admire, you’re likely to need to do at least some customization to fit your school, your program, and your students.

SUNY OER Services Courses

SUNY OER Services offers several template courses, supported by Lumen Learning, that can serve as starting points for your own development. You can mix, match, and adapt anything from the courses below quite easily.

These math courses are supported by Lumen Learning’s Online Homework Manager (OHM), an online OER homework system that provides algorithmically-generated problems and immediate feedback to help students practice and master math concepts.
