The following is taken from the Department of Mathematics ``generic syllabus" for MATH 171:
After successfully completing MATH 171, students will be able to demonstrate the following competencies in order to fulfill specific requirements set by the Core Philosophy and Goals Statement:
Clearly identify and analyze a problem, identify possible
solutions and give the rationale for a preferred solution.
Students will identify in homework and on tests their abilities in applying calculus theory and concepts to problems.
Students are expected to provide interpretations and explanations of their solutions to problems that are posed to them in class and on homework. Their grammar, sentence structure, punctuation and spelling are considered in the evaluation of their work.
This core learning objective is not applicable in this mathematics course.
Articulate relevant basic assumptions, concepts, theoretical
constructs, and factual information.
Throughout the course, students are expected to explain their assumptions and interpret their results in the theoretical framework of calculus.
Understand and apply relevant discipline-specific methodologies
and strategies of inquiry.
Students will demonstrate their facility in applying techniques of calculus to problems designed to test their understanding of the concepts.
