Example from 1st year Law
(critically reading a text)
Law students are introduced to the Grootboom case in their first-year Constitutional Law course.
Even this very brief extract from the judgment contains a number of tricky quantitative concepts such as:
- 111% increase
- compounding effect of consecutive percentage increases
- growth rates.
Many students have difficulty with quantitative concepts in context, so are challenged when required to explain the meaning of the last paragraph.
