Learning Goals

Upon completing the degree, a student majoring in Mathematics and Statistics will:

  1. Be familiar with examples of the application of mathematics and/or statistics to other fields.
  2. Be prepared for advanced undergraduate study in mathematics and statistics. In particular:
    1. Be able to write correct and coherent mathematical arguments.
    2. Understand foundational mathematical ideas related to formal logic, number theory, sets, functions and relations.
  3. Understand core ideas of advanced undergraduate mathematics, including:
    1. Fundamental concepts from abstract algebra (e.g., groups, rings and fields).
    2. Fundamental concepts from real analysis (e.g., continuity, differentiation, and integration).
  4. Be able to independently investigate an advanced topic in mathematics or statistics and to report the results of that investigation in a clear and organized manner, both orally and in writing.
