UAF Core Curriculum in Mathematics

The goals of the mathematics core curriculum are to ensure that students develop basic numeracy skills, are able to employ problem solving strategies, can communicate mathematical concepts, and are able to construct and evaluate mathematical arguments.

New guidelines have been developed for all core math courses starting Fall 2014. Instructors can find information about syllabus structure, required topics, timing, and assessment criteria.
