Action: Course Change Report



To change the wording of the pre-requisite for Ma 231.

The prerequisite has always been EITHER an appropriate background in high school mathematics OR MA 165. However, when the new Web Advisor system came into being this prerequisite was implemented in such a way that students who had not taken MA 165 were blocked from registering for MA 231. With the cooperation of the Provost and the Records Office we were able to bypass this problem during registration for spring, 2002.

The Provost has requested that we submit this course change request so that the problem does not occur in the future.



To modify the prerequisite for MA 231 to say "High school algebra and trigonometry OR MA 165." Our intention is that students be allowed to register for MA 231 WITHOUT taking MA 165.

Advisors must ascertain whether students who have not taken MA 165 have the appropriate background from secondary school to enroll in MA 231.
