"Quantitative Literacy"
#1
If you used a course through any of the "usual suspects" (but not a pure testing option like CLEP or TECEP) to satisfy a generic "math" or "quantitative literacy" requirement, what course did you do/use?

There are tons of options, it really just depends on how high of a level you need to take (College Algebra is pretty popular, so is stats, but some degrees require a lot less), and what your school will accept.

For courses:
- Shmoop (Algebra I & II, basically College Algebra), Finite Math, Math I, Geometry
- SL (College Algebra, Intro to Stats)
- Study.com (they have some math courses TESU deems developmental, but another school might accept, plus College Math, College Algebra, Geometry, Stats)

The reason I recommend Geometry is that some people who struggle with Algebra find Geometry more to their liking (my daughter struggled mightily with Algebra I, but is getting an A and loves Geometry; my son who breezed through Algebra I is having to work much harder at Geometry).

But I think Finite Math might be the easiest, or College Math.

I took the Applied Liberal Arts Math TECEP and thought it was probably the easiest math exam I've ever taken (definitely the easiest TECEP I took as well).

This is a really good point.  I've made the same observation.  Apart from proofs, geometry seems to use a whole different type of thinking than algebra, so most people prefer one over the other.
