Student Learning Outcomes

Math Major Learning Outcomes

  • Students will demonstrate a working knowledge of selected topics from calculus, linear algebra, and a distribution of other branches of mathematics.
  • Students will demonstrate the ability to determine the validity of a given argument and will be able to construct mathematical proofs independently.
  • Students will demonstrate understanding of the mathematical basis of common algorithms, and the ability to calculate accurately and efficiently.
  • Students will demonstrate the ability to solve problems, including applications outside of mathematics, by means of intuition, creativity, guessing, and the experience gained through the study of particular examples and mathematical models.
  • Students will demonstrate the ability to communicate mathematical ideas clearly. They will use correct mathematical terminology and proper mathematical notation.

Computer Science Major Learning Outcomes
