Carleton Summer Quantitative Reasoning

 

Overview

CSQR provides rising high school juniors and seniors with a substantial college-level experience as they see how social scientists think about the world, measure important variables of study, prepare research and present their findings. Participants undertake hands-on examination of theories and collaborate on the design and the execution of an original research project with peers and a faculty advisor. The program's structure helps students to understand major theories and concepts, as well as the manner in which social scientists study them. During the session, pupils use quantitative data to support written and oral arguments, learn to rigorously test hypotheses with statistical data, and gain experience in thinking through central problems and research questions while measuring relevant variables.
