|Description||" At Seaver College of Pepperdine University, we wanted all students to experience mathematics at the college level. Mathematics is a part of our daily experience, playing a major role in the facts and graphs we use to make decisions, guiding science and the social sciences, and helping us understand numbers and shapes. But as every college graduate should know, mathematics is much more than this. It is a logical structure that seeks to justify new facts based on explicit conditions, using logical arguments. It is a language that is precise and concise. It is a body of problem solving techniques. And finally, it is a fascinating subject in its own right, with many startling discoveries and puzzling questions.
For this reason, we expect students to learn a little about the mathematical notion of proof using the precision of mathematical language, a little about some important problem solving strategies, some scope of how mathematics is applied, and some idea of the scope of mathematical topics that have developed over the past several thousand years, including some that are being explored even today.
