This course is designed to help learners think and provide substantial evidence for their resolutions.  Learners are immersed in a process that encourages them to practice and value objective inquiry over subjective preconceptions.  By careful examination of their own thinking processes and the strategies of successful problem-solvers, students build a diverse repertoire of effective thinking skills.  Students then apply these numeric, deductive, and evaluative approaches to a gamut of problem scenarios, from the practical to the abstract.  (Prerequisite: ENGL120W)
