Measurable Student Learning Outcomes
1. (Application Level) Utilize calculators (scientific and/or graphing) and available computer software to model, investigate, solve and justify solutions to given problems.
2. (Analysis Level) Given a description of a set, express the set in set-builder notation; and given two or more sets, evaluate the union and intersection of the sets and represent the sets, intersection and union in a Venn diagram.
3. (Application Level) Apply the concepts of counting, factorials, permutations and combinations to calculate solutions to problems.
4. (Application) Use basic geometric figures (circle, square, rectangle, triangle) to model problems and apply the appropriate formula of measurement to find the missing quantity.
5. (Application Level) Calculate the odds of a specified event, apply the rules of probability to solve for the probability of specified events, determine dependent/independent events and evaluate the expected value of an event.
6. (Comprehension Level) Given a set of data, evaluate the mean, median, mode, range, variance and standard deviation, and calculate z-scores of a normal data set to solve problems.
7. (Application Level) Apply concepts of simple and compound interest, amortization and annuities to solve finance application problems.
8. (Analysis Level) Given a maximization or minimization problem, model the situation with a system of linear equations and/or inequalities and use concepts of linear programming to solve the problems graphically.
9. (Application Level) Apply the rules of exponents and logarithms to solve exponential growth and decay problems.
10. (Application Level) Select appropriate sampling technique, describe the population whose properties are to be analyzed, organize and present data, write the equation of a regression line, and use a sample correlation coefficient to determine whether there is a correlation in the population.
