    II. Course Information 

    Formal reasoning is abstract thinking/reasoning. It is the process of symbolically understanding and solving problems. Faculty legislation, November, 1985.

    Courses that typically carry the Formal Reasoning designations (R) include statistics, mathematics and logic.

    Please respond to the following questions to describe how your course will meet the goals of the faculty legislation as stated above:

    1. How does this course place its problems in a formal or abstract format/context that aids the development of reasoning ability? For example: How is symbolic notation used to clarify issues and problems? How is data analysis presented in an universal way that would allow broad application of the principles taught?
