Learning Outcomes for the General Education

Each area of the General Education curriculum has specific learning outcomes. As students progress through the curriculum, they will be asked to demonstrate mastery of these skills and knowledge areas. Identifying the learning outcome of a particular curricular area, helps students understand what they are expected to learn and why. The learning outcomes for each area of John Jay's general education program are identified below.

  • Interpret and draw appropriate inferences from quantitative representations, such as formulas, graphs, or tables.
  • Use algebraic, numerical, graphical, or statistical methods to draw accurate conclusions and solve mathematical problems.
  • Represent quantitative problems expressed in natural language in a suitable mathematical format.
  • Effectively communicate quantitative analysis or solutions to mathematical problems in written or oral form.
  • Evaluate solutions to problems for reasonableness using a variety of means, including informed estimation.
  • Apply mathematical methods to problems in other fields of study.
