Departmental Outcomes for Math 112, Fall 2017

The Math Department has established eight outcomes for graduating mathematics majors. The table below indicates which outcomes will beaddressed in Math 112.
Outcome Priority Where/when it is addressed
1. Demonstrates proficiency in Algebra and Trigonometry necessary for success in Advanced mathematical studies. High Students need this proficiency to understand problems and proofs, and do develop problem sovling skills. Knowledge, Analysis
2. Demonstrates proficiency in Differential, Integral, and Multivariable Calculus necessary for success in Advanced mathematical studies. Very High Techniques of integration, Differential Equations is the basis of this course and is the main component of it. Knowledge, Analysis
3. Demonstrates content knowledge of both abstract and applied mathematical disciplines by stating definitions, salient theorems, and proofs of major theorems and concepts that are core content in upper division courses. Low Content knowledge will be expanded; definitions and theorems are key to understanding calculus and how they help us develop a living knowledge of mathematics. Knowledge, Inquiry, Analysis
4. Organize and explain their knowledge of logic and mathematical content in the structure of original valid proofs. Low Proofs will be demonstrated by the instructor and examples will be presented in the book. Original proofs required of the student will be minimal. Communication, Analysis
5. Communicate mathematical ideas effectively in both written and oral context. Medium Students must be able to write solutions in a logical and cohesive manner; likewise, oral explanations are very important for the successful student. Communication
6. Apply major definitions, theorems and algorithms in problem solving. Medium Application problems appear in many chapters in calculus. Knowledge, Analysis
7. Use appropriate technological tools while solving mathematical problems. Low Students should have a good knowledge of calculator use and computers to aid them in solving problems. Use of calculators is restricted on tests, however. Knowledge, Analysis
8. Prepare professionally for graduate school or employment in mathematics or related fields. Low Applications of calculus are thrroughout the course. Inquiry, Service, Stewardship
