Offer/Provide programs in math that enable students to define mathematical concepts, calculate quantities, estimate solutions, solve problems, represent mathematical information, develop models, interpret data, explore systems, and communicate mathematical thoughts.

Offer/Provide programs in science that enable students to define science, gather scientific information, perform and interpret experiments, utilize procedures and explain observations using theories of science.

Mathematics Program Outcomes
(Developmental and Collegiate)
Students will be able to:

define
arithmetic, algebraic, geometric, spatial, and statistical
concepts

calculate
arithmetic, algebraic, geometric, spatial, and statistical
quantities
using appropriate technology.

estimate
arithmetic, algebraic, geometric, spatial, and statistical
solutions

solve
arithmetic, algebraic, geometric, spatial, and statistical
expressions, equations, functions, and problems
using appropriate technology.

represent
mathematical
information
numerically, symbolically, graphically, verbally, and visually
using appropriate technology.

develop
mathematical and statistical
models such as formulas, functions, graphs, tables, and schematics
using appropriate technology.

interpret
mathematical and statistical
models such as formulas, functions, graphs, tables, and schematics,
drawing conclusions and making inferences based on those models.

explore
mathematical
systems
utilizing rich experiences that encourage
independent, nontrivial, constructive exploration in mathematics.

communicate
mathematical
thoughts and ideas
clearly and concisely to others in the oral and written form.
 Inductive/inferential/internal: Professionally qualified instructors using outlines based on measurable student learning outcomes and provided with the necessary texts and technology will produce grades that reliably measure achievement of outcomes.
 Deductive/external: As a nondegree granting internal sequence the program will not be measured by a program specific capstone test or experience. The program will recommend that an external test designed to measure attainment of general education outcomes, to which this program contributes, be given late in the student's degree program. The test would be a measurement only, and not binding on graduation.

Science Program Outcomes
Students will be able to...

define
fundamental concepts, principles, and theories of
science.

gather
scientific
information
through experiments, field work, and research.

perform
experiments that support the development of scientific theory.

utilize
appropriate laboratory and field work
procedures.

interpret and express the results of
experiments.

explain
observations
of new phenomenon, systems, and entities,
using the theories of science.
