Quantitative and Symbolic Reasoning Foundations Learning Goals
At the completion of a Foundations course in Quantitative and Symbolic Reasoning, students will be able to:
- Students will be able to translate between real world concepts and quantitative or symbolic abstract structures.
- Students will be able to perform and interpret quantitative or symbolic manipulations in an abstract structure;
- Students will be able to construct carefully reasoned logical arguments.
- Students will be able to use abstract methods to analyze patterns and formulate conjectures with the goal of verifying them rigorously.
