  • Formulate, evaluate, and communicate conclusions and inferences from quantitative or symbolic information across disciplines
    • Formulate: set up a problem/program to model the given information
    • Evaluate: identify/use proper techniques for formulated scenario
    • Communicate: recognize the appropriateness of the solution, interpret the solution in context
    • Assumptions: analyzes a proper selection of assumptions
  • Apply effective and efficient mathematical processes to reason and solve problems across disciplines
    • Accuracy: the problem is done correctly
    • Efficiency: the problem is done clearly
    • Propriety: the techniques are reasonable and correct
