Program Outcomes


Upon completion of this program a student will be able to:

  • Effectively communicate the concepts of single and multivariable calculus, differential equations, and linear algebra using appropriate mathematical language.
  • Apply mathematical approaches from single and/or multivariable calculus, differential equations, and linear algebra to analyze and solve problems in mathematics and other disciplines.
  • Appropriately use current mathematical software, such as Matlab or MAPLE, for tasks in multivariable calculus, differential equations, and/or linear algebra.
