March
2, 2005We had a nice turnout: Rich A., Amelito,
Jack, Evan, Judy, Ray We continued our discussion
on SLOs for the Math/Sci Transfer Level Program. We've identified 4 possible SLOs.
One of the SLOs is regarding an "attitude" shift that addresses mathematical
maturity. The discussion led to "How do we assess this particular SLO?"
Leaving the question unanswered, we discussed the alignment matrix: in which courses
are these program level SLO's being addressed, and in what level. On
another note, we were able to discuss, briefly, a set of course level SLOs for
Math 251. However, discussion did not go very far. Notes:

February 16, 2005We
had a small turnout: Rich A., Chuck, Amelito, Ray We
discussed how we might identify the programs in our department. We began to brainstorm
as to how we might come up with goals and SLOs for each of the programs. We began
work with the Math/Sci Transfer Level Program. Notes:

Level Math/Science MajorsGoals:
The Mathematics Department offers a wide variety of courses
for students who wish to major in mathematics, science, and engineering. The mathematics
and science majors program provides opportunities to grow mathematically and lays
the foundation for the challenges of upperdivision mathematical and science courses
in four year institutions.  Student Learning
Outcomes:  Define and use functions in many aspects for modeling.
 Be
able to apply advanced mathematical concepts to problems in mathematics and computer
science, and life and physical sciences.
 Think critically about problemsolving
strategies.
 Increase confidence and maturity in mathematics.
