Students applying to the program are able to work confidently with abstract representations of fundamental mathematical concepts. They work effectively with whole numbers, integers, rational numbers and their equivalents. These students are developing mathematical reasoning processes and analytical techniques in order to solve more complex problems, and they may be able to use a more efficient solution strategy if one is available.
