^{[7]}The COVID-19 pandemic is arguably the worst crisis the world has faced, so far, in this new century We haven’t seen a pandemic like this since the 1918 Flu at the beginning of the last century, and, as of this writing, there appears to be no end in sight What those of us who’re focused on quantitative methods have noticed, in addition to the many people dying, becoming ill, and losing their livelihoods, is the importance of quantitative literacy to an understanding of what’s going on That’s what this article is about Specifically, it’s about how the COVID-19 pandemic is illustrating the importance of understanding different aspects of probability theory, particularly conditional probability © 2021, National Numeracy Network All rights reserved.

^{[8]}comprehensive university was conducted to assess five general education competency skills (written, oral, quantitative literacy, critical thinking and information literacy).

^{[9]}Although research into the relationship between quantitative literacy (QL) and news reporting is sparse, the consensus among researchers is that journalists tend not to place QL very highly among their professional values and that journalism suffers as a consequence.

^{[10]}Informed by writer-identity theory explaining links between emotion and identity, this study explores college STEM students’ feelings of comfort pertaining to math literacy, quantitative literacy, writing in STEM, and writing in general.

^{[11]}In this essay we remember early discussions attempting to answer three questions that played a formative role in our understanding of and approach to numeracy, quantitative literacy, and quantitative reasoning: (1) What is numeracy? (2) Should the QL movement promote any specific kind of pedagogy? (3) What organizational structure will best support QL? As the QL movement has progressed, these three questions continue to be difficult to answer.

^{[12]}A course in quantitative literacy is a unique opportunity to provide this quantitative understanding to a wide range of students in a general education context.

^{[13]}The present study explores undergraduate students’ productive struggles in a Quantitative Literacy (QL) course, when doing exercises on the statistical concept of confidence intervals (CIs) within the context of odds ratios (ORs) , embedded in everyday authentic contexts.

^{[14]}In addition, searching Google finds more than 30 adjective-literacy or noun-literacy collocations, including quantitative literacy, adult literacy, and document literacy, that do not have Wikipedia pages of their own but are mentioned on other Wikipedia pages.

^{[18]}At Michigan State University, college-level courses in both Quantitative Literacy and College Algebra now directly enroll students who previously would have placed into Intermediate Algebra.

^{[19]}Students not only improve their quantitative literacy but also learn more generally about the scientific method and the production of research.

^{[20]}A course in Quantitative Literacy (QL) offers non-STEM students an alternative option to introductory algebra as a path to a degree.

^{[21]}Quality generally declined over time, suggesting the quantitative literacy of PVA practitioners has not increased over time or that PVAs developed by unskilled users are being published in peer-reviewed journals.
