Statement of Faculty Senate Action:

 

APC Document 47:††††††††††††† Modification of Required courses outside the Math major in

†††† response to changes in the Chemistry curriculum

 

 

Effective Date:Fall 2006

 

 

1.Delete:†† On pg 176, under Concentration in Pure (Theoretical) Mathematics:

 

††††††††† ††††††††† Required courses outside the majoró9-11 hours, consisting of CSCI 201, and one of the

sequences: CHEM 111-132-144; ECON 101-102; PHYS 221-222

 

†††† Add:†††††† On pg 176, in place of deleted entry:

 

††††††††† ††††††††† Required courses outside the majoró9-11 hours, consisting of CSCI 201, and one of the

following groups of courses: CHEM 111, 132, 145 and 236; or ECON 101 and 102; or PHYS 221 and 222.

 

†††††††††††††

Impact: The Department of Chemistry has modified its general chemistry offering from two lectures and one lab (eight credit hours) to two lectures and two labs (eight credit hours). There is no credit hour impact associated with this change.

 

Rationale: The Department of Chemistry has changed its second semester general chemistry course from four credit hours to three credit hours to allow for the additional requirement of the CHEM 145 lab. This is a more typical approach to general chemistry, is consistent with the goals of this degree option, and positively increases the fundamental laboratory experience of Math majors without increasing the credit hours required for the major.
