## Program Learning Objectives

- Understand the nature of mathematical proof and be able to write clear and concise proofs.
- Develop the ability to read, understand, and use basic definitions in linear and abstract algebra and real analysis, and be able to prove simple consequences of these definitions.
- Be able to use standard mathematical techniques to solve elementary problems.
- Be able to communicate effectively in oral and written form.
- Be able to write simple computer programs to perform mathematical computations.
- Gain experience exploring open-ended problems, learn to make conjectures, and gather evidence to support or refute these conjectures.
- Develop the ability to read and to learn mathematics independently.
- Learn about applications of mathematics in other fields and gain experience in mathematical modeling
