Role in Curriculum

This course gives math majors a background to a body of mathematics beyond that offered by the
required math courses. This course is an elective for all math majors, but is required for math
majors with a specialization in adolescent education

Learning Goals and Assessment Plans

Learning GoalAssessment
The student will use Euclidean axioms,
coordinates, vectors, and/or transformations to
verify a given geometric result.
When the class is being assessed, the final exams
will include embedded questions to assess student
performance on these topic-specific learning
goals. Instructors are resposible for tallying
their students scores.
The student will prove a given geometric
statement by writing a concise but complete
mathematical argument
The student will use compass and straightedge to
perform a given Euclidean construction.
The student will be familiar with a geometry that
does not satisfy all Euclidean axioms.

When assessment activities are done, the results will be summarized in memorandum form and filed with the department chairperson for record keeping

Information obtained from assessment will be used to assess and self-reflect on the success of the course and to make any necessary changes to
improve teaching and learning effectiveness.
