Author Biography

Eric Gaze is a well-known leader in the quantitative reasoning community. After experiences teaching a liberal arts math course and an Excel course early in his career, Eric began to think about giving students a truly meaningful experience in math. He also came to see that spreadsheets were a powerful way to engage in real-world problem solving while learning mathematical concepts. Excited to discover a group of like-minded educators talking about “Quantitative Reasoning,” Eric began seriously working out a framework for a new course based around both proportional reasoning and Excel.


Eric Gaze directs the Quantitative Reasoning (QR) program at Bowdoin College, is Chair of the Center for Learning and Teaching, and is a Senior Lecturer in the Mathematics Department.  He is the current President of the National Numeracy Network (NNN 2013 - 2019), and a past chair of SIGMAA-QL (2010 - 12).  Eric has given talks and led workshops on the topics of QR Across the Curriculum, Creating a QR Entry Point Course, Writing with Numbers, QR Assessment, and Running a QR Program; and has served on review teams of QR programs. Eric was the Principal Investigator for a NSF TUES Type I grant (2012-14), Quantitative Literacy and Reasoning Assessment (QLRA) DUE 1140562. This collaborative project builds on Bowdoin College's QR instrument which is used for advising purposes and is available to interested schools. Prior to coming to Bowdoin, Eric led the development of a Masters in Numeracy program for K-12 teachers at Alfred University as an Associate Professor of Mathematics and Education.
