MATH 61 - Plane Geometry

The following are the Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs) and Course Measurable Objectives (CMOs) for MATH 61. A Student Learning Outcome is a measurable outcome statement about what a student will think, know, or be able to do as a result of an educational experience. Course Measurable Objectives focus more on course content, and can be considered to be smaller pieces that build up to the SLOs.

Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs)

  1. Given a statement, students will be able to make a drawing and write the hypothesis and conclusion using math notation pertinent to the drawing.
  2. Students can write a formal geometric proof.

Course Measurable Objectives (CMOs)

  1. Deduce conclusions logically by reasoning from definitions, assumptions and theorems in formal and informal, direct and indirect proofs.
  2. Identify and develop valid arguments and recognize errors in reasoning.
  3. State and use geometric definitions.
  4. Perform fundamental geometric constructions using a compass and straightedge.
  5. Apply the properties of geometric figures (angles, triangles, quadrilaterals, circles, etc.).
  6. State and use geometric formulae (areas, Pythagorean Theorem, angles, arcs, etc.).
  7. Apply properties of ratio, proportion and similarity.
