Student Learning Outcomes
Students graduating from this program will:
- apply logical reasoning skills towards answering theoretical and conceptual questions of the core areas of mathematics, meaning students will be able to explicate concepts, theorems, and standard proofs, provide and/or analyze relevant examples and counterexamples, and construct logically correct and mathematically rigorous proofs.
- demonstrate quantitative skills by implementing analytical or numerical techniques for a given task, as well as initiating concrete computations and approximations, and demonstrate the ability to carry them out.
- demonstrate qualitative skills, such as the ability to translate real-world problems into mathematical formulations, apply analytical or numerical strategies and techniques, provide exact or approximate solutions or partial solutions to problems as appropriate, and interpret and explain the results as well as the assumptions behind those results.
- demonstrate the ability to prepare background materials or gather data, write and produce one or more revisions seeking out peer or other reviews, and finally write a mathematics or statistics project report, an exposition of mathematics, or create and give an oral presentation tailored to a given audience.
