 Mathematics 
  Systems of linear equations, matrices, determinants, vector spaces, linear transformations, eigenvalues, and eigenvectors. 
  Systems of differential equations, local and global behavior of a vector field in the plane, discrete dynamical systems, structural stability, the PoincareBendixon theorem, bifurcations, chaos, and strange attractors. 
  Three key assessment areas are mathematical modeling (translating realworld situations into mathematics), mathematical reasoning (manipulation, by hand or by computer, of data and expressions using valid mathematical techniques) and communication (ability to write cogent and wellformulated reports).
