 Entry Level Expectations 
  While geometry, statistics, discrete mathematics, and other fields are obviously important, the strong consensus among mathematicians at the college level is that inadequate mastery of arithmetic and algebra is the greatest impediment to success in college mathematics, whether for general education or in mathematically intensive courses of study. 
  Be able to form inverses, converses and contrapositives of implications expressing geometric (and other) propositions, give definitions of geometric terms, make valid geometric deductions with explanations, and give coherent proofs of geometric propositions. 
  Employ confidently the formal properties and algebraic techniques associated with each family, be able to relate the parameters of each family to corresponding graphs, and use these functions in applications.
