Real World Learning Objects (RWLO)

The Real World Learning Objects (RWLO) Resource Library is an online repository of Internet-based learning objects designed so that community college faculty can easily access and adapt for use in their classes.  Its internet-based activities are focused on discrete topics in higher education mathematics, science, educational technology, and language arts. They can easily be used in similar courses at other institutions to enhance learning and integrate technology in a meaningful way.

Carleton’s Quantitative Inquiry, Reasoning, And Knowledge Initiative (QUIRK)

The Science Education Resource Center (SERC) works to improve education through projects that support educators. The Center emphasizes undergraduate Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education and works with educators across a broad range of disciplines and at all educational levels. SERC's services to the education community lie in four primary areas: faculty professional development, bringing science into broader use, community visioning, and research on learning.

Social Explorer

Social Explorer is a premier U.S. demographics website. The site's online tools help users visually analyze and understand the demography of the United States through the use of interactive maps and data reports. The site's primary product is a web-based application that creates fast, intuitive, and visually appealing maps and reports. Anyone with an Internet connection can gain access through the site to census data that was previously the domain of social science experts.

Quantitative Environmental Literacy Project (QELP)

This is the site for the Quantitative Environmental Literacy Project (QELP), located in Seattle, WA. QELP's mission is to promote quantitative science literacy and applied mathematics through curricular revision at the college level by linking and integrating mathematics and environmental science. Funded by the National Science Foundation, QELP's main goal is to promote interdisciplinary education between science and mathematics at the beginning college level (first or second year).

The Washington Center

This is the site for The Washington Center for Improving the Quality of Undergraduate Education.  The Center is a National Science Foundation funded project that invites faculty from community colleges and research universities to develop and pilot spreadsheet modules to enhance students’ quantitative literacy skills.  Established in 1985, the Center is a public service center of Evergreen State College.

University Of Nebraska-Reno

Mathematical Association Of America- QL

This is the site for the Mathematical Association of America, which is the largest professional society that focuses on making mathematics accessible. The Association's mission is to advancethe mathematical sciences, especially at the undergraduate college level.

Spreadsheets Across The Curriculum (SSAC)

Spreadsheets Across the Curriculum has a large collection of  educational spreadsheet modules designed to enhance quantitative literacy wherever quantitative problems arise in the undergraduate curriculum.

Science Education Resource Center (SERC)

Site for "Teaching Quantitative Literacy in the Geosciences", part of SERC, the Science Education Resource Center at Carleton College. SERC works to improve science education with a particular emphasis on undergraduate Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. SERC works with educators across a broad range of disciplines and at all educational levels. The Center has special expertise in effective pedagogies, geo-science education, community organization, workshop leadership, digital libraries, website development and program and website evaluation.

The Center For Mathematics And Quantitative Education At Dartmouth

The Center for Mathematics &Quantitative Education at Dartmouth, part of the National Numeracy Network, works to establish a collection of materials for teaching quantitative literacy across all disciplines and levels. The materials on the site feature context driven mathematics and are sorted according to level and discipline.

Mathematics Across The Community College Curriculum (MAC^3)

Mathematics Across the Community College Curriculum (MAC^3), funded by the National Science Foundation, is dedicated to creating a mathematically literate society to ensure a workforce equipped to compete in a technologically advanced global economy. This project develops training for math and non-math faculty across the disciplines to create, evaluate and modify projects that incorporate mathematics in community college curriculum.

National Numeracy Network

The National Numeracy Network, now located at Carleton College, offers its members a network of individuals, institutions, and corporations united by the common goal of quantitative literacy for all citizens. Through national meetings, faculty workshops, research initiatives, and information sharing, the NNN aims to strengthen the capacity of our country in the quantitative areas of business, industry, education, and research across all disciplines.

STATS

A nonprofit, nonpartisan research organization affiliated with the George Mason University. Its mission is to improve the quality of scientific and statistical information in public discourse and to act as a resource for journalists and policy makers on scientific issues and controversies.

QL At Hollins University

This is the site for the Quantitative Reasoning Across the Curriculum program at Hollins University, located in Roanoke, VA.
