### Learning Goals for the Major Program in Mathematics with a Concentration in Statistics

*At Wittenberg, math majors will develop a breadth of understanding*

in calculus, linear algebra, statistics, and computer programming,

along with a depth of knowledge in algebra, analysis, or statistics.

- Students will formulate complete, concise, and correct mathematical
**proofs**. - Students will frame problems using multiple mathematical and statistical representations of relevant structures and relationships and
**solve**using standard techniques. - Students will create quantitative
**models**to solve real world problems in appropriate contexts. - Students will effectively use professional level
**technology**tools to support the study of mathematics and statistics. - Students will clearly
**communicate**quantitative ideas both orally and in writing to a range of audiences.

The coursework that a student undertakes with as a major in mathematics with a concentration in statistics will support the learning goals in the following way:

### Learning Goals for the Minor Program in Statistics

*At Wittenberg, stat minors will develop a breadth of understanding*

in statistics and probability,

with the goal of applying statistics in context.

- Students will
**summarize**data visually and numerically. - Students will build and assess data-based
**models**. - Students will learn and apply the tools of formal
**inference**. - Students will ... the
**mathematical**and**probabilistic**foundations of statistical inference. - Students will execute statistical analyses with professional
**software.**
