Curriculum Action Notice


From:

Academic Affairs Committee

Date:

January 15, 2002 (a)

This is a bulletin from the Academic Affairs Committee concerning proposed curriculum actions. Within the next 10 days, please forward any comments or concerns to the AAC Chair, Helen Biblehimer, Elliott Hall 203, x4521, hbiblehi@mnsfld.edu.

The department of Mathematics and Computer Science has proposed the following curricular changes:

 

#1 Action: Program Deletion: BA Mathematics

Rationale: Low enrollment

 

#2 Action: Program Change for B.S. Mathematics

Rationale for the Change: The Provost has requested that we have two concentration areas in one degree instead of two degrees.

B.S. Mathematics Pure Mathematics Concentration

List all changes:

This concentration has the exact same course requirements as the B.A. Mathematics major has currently. This concentration is designed to replace that major. The department requests contingent on the acceptance of the changes contained in this program change that the B.A. Mathematics major be placed in moratorium (please see attached paper work).

There is one change on the evaluation record in response to the new general education program. Since the Mathematics block was reduced from a minimum of 6 credits to a minimum of 3 credits by administrative fiat, we are now listing MA 232 Calculus II under Group 6.

Program Description for Catalog (if changed):

This concentration has the exact same program description as the B.A. Mathematics major has currently with only a name change. This concentration is designed to replace that major. The catalog description is as follows:

The B.S. Mathematics Pure Mathematics concentration is a flexible curriculum designed to accommodate a wide range of career objectives.

Program Objectives (if changed):

This concentration has the exact same program objectives as the B.A. Mathematics major has currently. This concentration is designed to replace that major.

 

B.S. Mathematics Applied Mathematics Concentration

List all changes:

This concentration has the exact same course requirements as the B.S. Mathematics major has currently. This concentration is designed to replace that major.

There is one change on the evaluation record in response to the new general education program. Since the Mathematics block was reduced from a minimum of 6 credits to a minimum of 3 credits by administrative fiat, we are now listing Ma 232 Calculus II under Group 6.

Program Description for Catalog (if changed):

This concentration has the exact same program description as the B.S. Mathematics major has currently with only a name change. This concentration is designed to replace that major. The catalog description is as follows:

The B.S. Mathematics Applied Mathematics concentration is more applications-oriented and requires more specified courses than the pure concentration.

Program Objectives (if changed):

This concentration has the exact same program objectives as the B.S. Mathematics major has currently. This concentration is designed to replace that major.
