Over the past six years, each issue of NLA News has included an
example used in teaching quantitative reasoning to college students with majors
ranging over the academic disciplines. From this material, we have collected a
group of 28 mini-case studies which have proved useful in introductory college
courses on problem-solving and quantitative methods.
Each small piece in this collection provides interesting background
material for a quantitative exercise that must be designed by the user.
