# BA Mathematics - Student Learning Outcomes

Below are the program student learning goals and outcomes for the BA program.
The program is assessed through different means including assessing certain
student learning outcomes through evaluation of student work.
A map of which courses are used to assess each student learning outcome can
be seen in the BA Student Learning Outcome Map.
## Goal 1

Students will demonstrate a conceptual understanding of mathematics
###
Student Learning Outcomes

1.1 Students will demonstrate an understanding of and apply fundamental concepts, operations, and relations

1.2 Students will make connections between mathematical ideas verbally, numerically, analytically, visually, and graphically

1.3 Students will achieve proficiency in modeling with mathematics

###
Assessments Methods and Measures

The assessment procedure for all objectives 1 and 2 will be based on the
principles of "embedded questions."
