Statement
of Faculty Senate Action:
Effective Date: Fall 2008
1. Delete: On p. 195,
under Concentration in Applied Mathematics, item I:
I.
Required
courses in the major—38–39 hours, including: MATH 191, 192, 280, 291, 352, 365,
381, 394, 480; MATH 461 or 491; STAT 225 or 425; and an additional 6 hours in
Mathematics or Statistics courses numbered above 300. These latter hours must
include either: one course from MATH 366 or 395, or the sequence STAT 425426.
Add: On page 195, in place of deleted
entry:
I.
Required
courses in the major—38–39 hours, including: MATH 191, 192, 280, 291, 341, 365,
381, 394, 480, 491; STAT 225 or 425; and an additional 6 hours in Mathematics
or Statistics at the 300400 level.
These latter hours must include one course from MATH 352, 366, 395, 492,
or STAT 426.
Impact:
There
is no difference in the number of hours required for the Applied Math
Concentration with this change. There will be a slight increase in the number
of students taking MATH 341 and 491. MATH 492 may also see a slight increase in
enrollment that will be offset by a slight decrease in the enrollment of MATH
352 since they will become part of a list of five courses from which students
can choose. MATH 461 may see a decrease in the number of students taking it.
Rationale:
Students will learn the
material expected of a student entering graduate school in applied mathematics
by taking Numerical Analysis and Real Analysis.
Because we are restricting their choices in this way, we propose to
broaden the list of courses they can take for their additional 6 hours for the
major.
