Mathematics Learning Outcomes

Mathematics is a continuously evolving discipline that offers students an increased potential for understanding the world. Issues in diverse areas including medicine, business, science and the arts raise questions that require individuals to have a fundamental knowledge of mathematics. Mathematics enables the individual to make connections, use appropriate technology, formulate mathematical models to analyze real data, and to read and interpret quantitative information in order to make meaningful and appropriate decisions. In an ever-changing and increasingly global community, the mathematically-literate citizen will possess the problem-solving, reasoning and communication skills that will enable him/her to grow and meet its demands.

By studying mathematics, students will:

  1. Analyze and solve problems numerically, graphically and symbolically.
  2. Use mathematical tools and technology, including calculators and computers, to create mathematical models of real-world situations.

Students must earn a minimum of three credits from the following list of courses in order to meet the general education requirement for associate degree programs.
