Appalachian General Education
A common expectation for all capstone experiences is that students
will reflect on their own development in the
four educational goals for all students at ASU:
Prepare the following as a typed, single-spaced reflection:
For each goal, provide at least
2 examples - one from your mathematics courses
and one from your other courses - that illustrate that you have
met these goals. For
instance, inside of mathematics local to global might refer to mathematicians
here and abroad or to small scale/large scale concepts.
- Thinking Critically & Creatively
- Communicating Effectively
- Making Local to Global Connections
- Understanding Responsibilities of Community Membership
A local to global example from calculus could be that
Euclidean geometry or rectangular coordinates is useful on a
small scale but on a global scale other geometry and coordinate systems are
important. More specifically, a
dx term is infinitessimal (local) but the global function
shape is also important for an area calculation like the
integral over a region.
So you will have at least 8 examples total.
In addition, be prepared to share your responses in class.
