Departmental Outcomes for Math 301, Fall 2020

The Math Department has established eight outcomes for graduating mathematics majors. The table below indicates which outcomes will beaddressed in Math 301.
Outcome Priority Where/when it is addressed
1. Demonstrates proficiency in Algebra and Trigonometry necessary for success in Advanced mathematical studies. Minimal Students need this proficiency to understand problems and proofs. Knowledge, Analysis
2. Demonstrates proficiency in Differential, Integral, and Multivariable Calculus necessary for success in Advanced mathematical studies. Minimal The student will use concepts from calculus in the studey of analysis and sequences. 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. Medium The student will be able to learn content knowledge that is essential to develop proofs. This will be followed in Chapters 5 and onward with new material, definitions and proofs. Knowledge, Inquiry, Analysis
4. Organize and explain their knowledge of logic and mathematical content in the structure of original valid proofs. Very High This is the main emphasis of the course. A student will be introduced to and develop the skill of organizing and writing original proofs. Communication, Analysis
5. Communicate mathematical ideas effectively in both written and oral context. High Students will be able to write solutions in a logical and cohesive manner; likewise, oral explanations are very important for the successful student. These will be developed throughout the course and will subsequently impact their success in upper-division courses. Communication
6. Apply major definitions, theorems and algorithms in problem solving. Low Applications and examples are given to reinforce concepts. They will not be used extensively. A student should therefore be able to present examples to others in helping them understand the concepts and definitions. Knowledge, Analysis
7. Use appropriate technological tools while solving mathematical problems. Minimal Technology is not a main objective in this course. Minimal use may be involved to illustrate and reinforce concepts and definitions. Students may be introduced to writing proofs in Latex or a similar program for writing mathematics. Knowledge, Analysis
8. Prepare professionally for graduate school or employment in mathematics or related fields. Minimal While the course minimally prepares students for employment or graduate school, it enables students to begin their journey in their decision for graduate school, employment, or other decisions. Inquiry, Service, Stewardship
