Every academic profession involves a lifetime of learning. Practitioners need to stay abreast of new advances and refresh their knowledge from time to time. Learning the contents of a course is important, but perhaps a more important lesson is learning how to learn.
The UW Mathematics Department aims to provide you with a broad training in reasoning. Mathematics is unique in its organization, its reliance on symbolism, and its content. Your skills in analytic thinking, formal and informal logic, abstracting from the particular, and specializing from the general to the particular will be the centerpiece of your undergraduate accomplishments--in all the classes that you take.
