Drawing on her experience teaching quantitative reasoning (QR) skills to her students at the Kennedy School of Government, Professor Hughes Hallett will argue that faculty must work cooperatively to achieve effective general education goals like (QR). She has been a central, national figure in both the quantitative reasoning movement and the drive to reform Calculus education.

Deborah Hughes Hallett, having previously played a central role in the revision of Calculus education (including organizing the Calculus Consortium for Higher Education), she now is a leader in the quantitative reasoning movement. She has authored or co-authored seven books ranging from a top-selling calculus text to_A Mathematical Exploration of Apportionment Procedures Around the World_ (with Lotfi Hermi and William G. McCallum), an examination of voting systems throughout history. Professor Hughes Hallett graduated from Cambridge University.
