- Students recognize common mathematical notations and operations used in mathematics, science and engineering.
- Students can recognize and classify a variety of mathematical models including differential equations, linear and nonlinear systems of algebraic equations, and common probability distributions.
- Students have developed a working knowledge (including notation, terminology, foundational principles of the discipline, and standard mathematical models within the discipline) in at least one discipline outside of mathematics.
- Students are able to extract useful knowledge, both quantitative and qualitative, from mathematical models and can apply that knowledge to the relevant discipline.
