Math SLO Assessment
Assessment of the MATHEMATICS Department's Student Learning Outcomes (SLO) is documented and described below. Through this ongoing process of quality improvement, we hope to improve student success while maintaining and improving the relevance and intellectual rigor of our mathematics courses that help to prepare students for the next stage of their lives: be it further study or entry into a new career opportunity.
AS-T Degree Program Outcomes
The Associate in Science in Mathematics for Transfer degree is designed to provide students with sufficient understanding of mathematical concepts, skills, and applications to succeed in upper division coursework in mathematics at a four-year college or university.
Students who complete this degree are guaranteed acceptance to a California State University, but are not guaranteed acceptance to a particular CSU campus or major. Students who plan to transfer to any other college or university should consult that institution’s catalog for specific transfer requirements.
Upon completion of the mathematics major, students will be able to:
- Demonstrate computational and conceptual proficiency in differential and integral calculus, both single and multi-variable.
- Recognize and construct valid mathematical arguments.
- Use appropriate concepts and techniques from calculus and post-calculus mathematics to solve applied problems.
- Understand and apply rules of formal systems.
Upon completion of courses in mathematics, students will be able to:
- Construct, transform, and interrelate symbolic, graphical, numerical, and verbal representations of mathematical structures and patterns.
- Read, interpret, communicate, and critique mathematical explanations.
- Apply appropriate mathematical modeling methods and tools to solve problems in a clear and organized way.
Each Mathematics Department course is on a continuous cycle of course revision and SLO assessment. Course outlines are revised at least once every six years, assessment results reviewed at least once every three years with some courses being reviewed more often.
The course titles below are linked to corresponding course outlines and SLO assessment reports.
