Applied Mathematics Specialization Learning Goals

  1. Master theoretical foundations based on mathematical rigor through proofs
  2. Apply mathematical theory to model and solve problems dealing with physical, natural and societal problems
  3. Use technology to solve computational problems, including simulation and visualization of mathematical models
    1. Majors should be able to adapt to different technology platforms that are useful for mathematical computing
    2. Majors should be able to make mathematical conjectures and use technology to support or refute these conjectures
  4. Provide clear and effective written and oral communication to diverse audiences
    1. Necessitates being able to read mathematics and communicate mathematics to other mathematicians.
    2. Also requires communicating mathematical results to a non-mathematical audience
  5. Develop content knowledge in a related discipline
    1. Majors should be able to apply their mathematics knowledge to other sciences and engineering
    2. Majors should be able to recognize mathematical ideas embedded in other contexts
