RECOMMENDED CATALOG CORRECTIONS/CHANGES
__________ __ ___________
DEPARTMENT OF MATHEMATICS
1. p. 143 Under "Program A...I. Required courses in the
major." This should read (change is underlined):
I. Required courses in the major - 36 hours, including
Mathematics 191, 192, 280, 291 (15 hours), 3 hours in
__ __________
Mathematics 380, and an additional 18 hours in
courses numbered...
p. 143 under "Program B... I. Required courses in the
major." Identical wording as above for first 2 lines
under "I. Required courses..."
Rationale: Greater clarity in what department wants
in the major.
2. p. 144 under "Program D... I. Required courses in major":
__ ___
In place of (Math) 266 alone, write "266 or 365."
Rationale: Allows the major to use a more sophisticated
linear algebra course to satisfy this requirement.
3. p. 145, numbering of Math 131, 132:
Change 131 to 157
Change 132 to 158
Rationale: To make it possible for students in education
to receive credit for present MATH 131 or 132 after having
taken MATH 155 (all college requirement, Nature of Mathematics).
___
Note: Elementary Education students are not exempt from
this course; math majors are.

4. p. 146, prerequisite listing for Math 163:
Change from 162 to 105
Rationale: Math 162 no longer exists; Math 105 replaces
that.
5. p. 148, number and prerequisite for Math 462, Theory of
Numbers:
Change 462 to 368 and change prerequisite "361" to "280"
Rationale: This course is never taught as a strictly
senior course only for very advanced students. It should
be a more "recreational" type of course, so this change
will make the level of the course fall more in line with
the way the department now intends to teach it.
6. p. 191, course description for STAT 228:
Change "interactive APL programs" to "statistical packages."
Change prerequisite to read: STAT 125, 185 or 225
Rationale: More accurate course description and to take
into account the new higher level statistics course 185 we
have added.
7. p. 191, prerequisite listing for STAT 325, 327:
Change to read (as in #6): STAT 125, 185 or 225.
8. p. 192, prerequisite for STAT 425:
Change to read: Prerequisite: MATH 291.
Rationale: Having 225 as a prerequisite serves no useful
purpose at the present time. Math 291 (Calculus III) is more
appropriate.
