Milo Schield, Professor, Department of Business Administration, Augsburg Colelge

Milo Schield discusses research he has been doing on how numbers are represented in the popular media. In addition, he addresses the implications of his findings for efforts to prepare students to be critical consumers of numbers in the news. He's particularly interested in discussing whether we should embed numeracy in courses across the curriculum or in dedicated quantitative literacy courses.
