Statement of Faculty Senate Action:

 

 

APC Document 42:      ††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Remove the repeat option for Math 381 

 

Effective Date:Fall 2010 
 

 

1.Delete:†††††††††† On page 215, in the description for MATH 381, Problems in Mathematics:

 

The course may be repeated for credit.

 

 

Impact:

Since it was extremely rare that a student took this class twice,this change will have little impact on the departmentís Students.

 

 

Rationale:††

MATH 381 is a one-hour class that has two objectives. The first is to give students experience in solving non-conventional mathematical problems taken from a variety of topics that are often not addressed in standard courses. The second objective is to give students experience in presenting mathematics to their peers, thus preparing them for the departmentís Senior Seminar. Allowing students to retake the class implies that the instructor must offer a different set of topics each year. This however is not current practice, and retaking the class would not be appropriate.

 

 

 

2.Delete:†††††††††† On page 213, under Minor in Mathematics, third sentence:

 

No more than one credit in MATH 381 and one credit from MATH 480 can be used as part of the 21 hours.

 

†††††††

Impact:

None.

 

Rationale:

Students minoring in Math were not repeating these courses to fulfill the requirements for the minor. Since the repeat option has been removed from MATH 381, the notation is no longer needed.
