### Learning Outcomes

The minimal learning outcomes section of the Math 570 Wiki page outlines material which all students in Math 570 should understand. As evidence of that understanding, students should be able to demonstrate mastery of relevant vocabulary, familiarity with common examples and counterexamples, knowledge of the major theorems, understanding of the ideas in their proofs, and ability to make direct application of those results to related problems.
