Learning Goals for Mathematics

Nathan, Amalia, Ryan, and Kara


Upon completion of the Mathematics major, we expect our graduates:

  1. To have acquired both proficiency at calculation and a theoretical understanding of single-variable calculus, multivariable calculus, and linear algebra.
  2. To have developed an ability to read and understand mathematical proofs, as well as to construct and communicate their own mathematical proofs.
  3. To have demonstrated in a variety of courses the ability to learn and apply new mathematical concepts, definitions, theorems, reasoning skills, and proof skills.
  4. For honors students, to have delved deeply into an advanced topic and written a clear and detailed exposition in the form of a senior thesis.
