Math Student Learning Outcomes

Developmental Mathematics Courses

Students will be able to:

  • Interpret and analyze sequential math processes.
  • Utilize an effective problem solving process.
  • Interpret and present data, and draw appropriate conclusions and recommendations.
  • Simplify, solve, evaluate and/or graph a variety of math related problems.

Credit Bearing Mathematics Courses


Students will be able to:

  • Understand the concept of functions verbally, numerically, graphically and symbolically.
  • Relate and apply algebraic relationships to career applications.
  • Interpret and analyze data from mathematical models in real world applications.
  • Use appropriate technology to enhance mathematical thinking and judge the reasonableness of their results.
  • Employ theories of functions and tools of mathematics to obtain a solution.

Although slightly modified, developmental mathematics course outcomes were originally taken from Dona Ana Community College’s state level competencies, and credit bearing course outcomes were based on AMATYC standards, found in “Crossroads in Mathematics,” from the AMATYC website.
