Outcome Statements (a.k.a. Study Guide)
Homework Assignments
How to read the Outcome Statements
. The sections from the book we will use are listing in chronology
order.
In parenthesis following the title of each section is listed the expected number of class days to be
spent on that section. For each section there are listed four categories of information.
•
Outcomes: these are specific learning objectives, the things you are expected to learn.
•
Reading: this indicates the section from the book that you should read before class.
•
Homework: this gives a list of assigned homework problems from the book.
•
Outcome Mapping: this associates the learning outcome with the assigned homework problems. For
example, on the next page in the outcome mapping for the section “1 Systems of Linear Equations
(one day)” you will find “A. 6(a,d,h)” which means that problems 6(a,d,h) are associated with outcome
statement A, which is “Determine when a system of linear equations is consistent or inconsistent.”
You are encouraged to use these outcome statements in your preparation for exams. All of the questions on
the exams will be designed to test your achieving of a randomly selected subset of the learning objectives as
described in the outcomes statements. You can test yourself on each outcome statement by checking if you
can correctly do the assigned homework associated with that outcome statement.
