Departmental Outcomes for Math 421, Fall 2020

The Math Department has established eight outcomes for graduating mathematics majors. The table below indicates which outcomes will beaddressed in Math 421.
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. Medium Students need this proficiency to understand problems and proofs. 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. High 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. Very High Everywhere in the course. Each assignment is key in developing these skills in students. Communication, Analysis
5. Communicate mathematical ideas effectively in both written and oral context. Very High 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. High Students must know and apply theorems. Knowledge, Analysis
7. Use appropriate technological tools while solving mathematical problems. Medium Students should have a good knowledge of calculator use, as well as desktop software for writing mathmatics. Knowledge, Analysis
8. Prepare professionally for graduate school or employment in mathematics or related fields. Medium 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
