Mathematics (BS) - Statistics

Shown here are the general learning goals of the program broken down into specific student learning outcomes (SLOs). These SLOs represent what a student should be able to do as a result of successfully completing this program. Student performance on these outcomes are routinely assessed by program faculty as a way of informing programmatic improvement efforts.

Goal Outcome

Student will read and communicate mathematics with understanding and clarity.

  • Students will locate, analyze, synthesize, and evaluate information to make effective oral presentations on various topics.
  • Students will locate, analyze, synthesize, and evaluate information to make effective written presentations on various topics.

Students will demonstrate an understanding of the nature of mathematics

  • Students will demonstrate an understanding of mathematics as a mixture of science, language, applications, and art.
  • Students will demonstrate an understanding of the breadth of the mathematical sciences, including an understanding and appreciation of connections between different areas of mathematics and with other disciplines.

Students will demonstrate the ability to select and utilize appropriate techniques and technologies.

  • Students will analyze problems using appropriate technology.

Students will learn to apply precise logical reasoning to problem solving.

  • Students will demonstrate persistence and skill in exploration, conjecture, and generalization.
  • Students will discern and generalize mathematical patterns and reason rigorously in order to solve complex problems.
