Expected Student Outcomes

Upon successful completion of the mathematics major, students will:

  • Learn, understand and apply mathematics from the core mathematical disciplines of calculus, abstract algebra, analysis, modeling, differential equations, geometry, probability, and statistics.
  • Formulate and solve problems using mathematical tools, while working alone or in groups on routine problems, non-routine and open-ended problems, problems involving applications to other fields, problems involving real-world data, and abstract problems within mathematics.
  • Create, analyze and apply mathematical abstraction to real problems by understanding and producing formal mathematical arguments with an appreciation for the mathematical standards of rigor, elegance, and beauty.
  • Learn independently, locate and use appropriate sources of technical material, and make use of modern computational tools.
  • Produce convincing, precise verbal and written communications of technical material.
