COURSE PROPOSALS

Form RC:

Revised Course Proposal

FORM RC

(2/00)

Discipline:

Mathematics

 

 

Date:

Sept 20, 2000

 

Course Revision #1

I. Give complete UMM catalog entry (deletions in strikethru font, additions underlined)(see instructions)

Math 2201f. Pure Mathematics I. (M/SR; 4 cr; QP-1203 or #; SP-1102 or #)

II. Rationale (see instructions):

We are expanding two required four-credit courses, Pure Math I and Pure Math II, to three required four-credit courses, Mathematical Perspectives, Abstract Algebra, and Analysis. The new structure divides the material more naturally and is more in accord with national standards.

Course Revision #2

I. Give complete UMM catalog entry (deletions in strikethru font, additions underlined)(see instructions)

Math 2211f. History of Mathematics. (M/SR; 4 cr; QP-#; SP – Math course above 1100 or #; not offered 1999-2000 2001-2002)

Historical development of various areas in mathematics and important figures in mathematics from ancient to modern times.

II. Rationale (see instructions):

The years were changed for obvious reasons.

Course Revision #3

I. Give complete UMM catalog entry (deletions in strikethru font, additions underlined)(see instructions)

Math 3201s. Pure Mathematics II. (M/SR; 4 cr; SP-2201 or equiv)

II. Rationale (see instructions):

See rationale just above.

Course Revision #4

I. Give complete UMM catalog entry (deletions in strikethru font, additions underlined)(see instructions)

Math 3211f. Geometry. (M/SR; 4 cr; QP-1202 or #; SP prereq– Math course above 1100; not offered 2000-2001 2002-2003)

Analytic Synthetic approach to Euclidean and non- Euclidean geometries. Selected topics from affine, hyperbolic, spherical, projective geometries. Examples are featured. Possible comparisons of analytic and synthetic approaches. May include other related topics or use of computer software for geometry.

II. Rationale (see instructions):

The years were changed for obvious reasons.

The replacement corrects what was incorrectly worded in the first place.

The use of examples is understood without any other mention.

The addition reflects a component of the class the last two (this one included) times the course was taught. This component was introduced since the class is part of the teacher preparation requirements and computer sofwares are used in the teaching of geometry at the high school level.

Course Revision #5

I. Give complete UMM catalog entry (deletions in strikethru font, additions underlined)(see instructions)

Math 4201fs. Complex Analysis. (M/SR; 2cr; QP-3202 or #; SP-2201 or equiv prereq 3221 or #; not offered 2000-2001 2002-2003)

II. Rationale (see instructions):

Here and on the rest of this page, the change in prerequisites corresponds to the new structure of our lower level courses.

Course Revision #6

I. Give complete UMM catalog entry (deletions in strikethru font, additions underlined)(see instructions)

Math 4211fs. Real Analysis. (M/SR; 2 cr; QP-3410 or #; SP-3201 or equiv prereq 3221 or #; not offered 2000-2001 2001-2002)

II. Rationale (see instructions):

 

Course Revision #7

I. Give complete UMM catalog entry (deletions in strikethru font, additions underlined)(see instructions)

Math 4221s. Topology. (M/SR; 2cr; QP-3250,3202 or #; SP-3201 or equiv prereq 2301 or #; not offered 1999-2000 2002-2003)

II. Rationale (see instructions):

 

Course Revision #8

I. Give complete UMM catalog entry (deletions in strikethru font, additions underlined)(see instructions)

Math 4231sf. Abstract Algebra II. (M/SR; 2 cr; QP-3310 or #; SP-3201 or equiv prereq 3231 or #; not offered 2000-2001 2001-2002)

Selected topics from the theory of finite groups, Galois theory of fields, and/or the theory of rings.

II. Rationale (see instructions):

We are changing the title from Abstract Algebra to Abstract Algebra II because the algebra material in Pure Math I and Pure Math II is now put into its own 3000-level course, Math 3231 Abstract Algebra. The change in prerequisite also corresponds to the new structure of our lower level courses.

Course Revision #9

I. Give complete UMM catalog entry (deletions in strikethru font, additions underlined)(see instructions)

Math 4241f. Number Theory. (M/SR; 2cr; QP-3250 or #; SP-2201 or equiv prereq 2301 or #; not offered 1999-2000 2002-2003)

II. Rationale (see instructions):

 

Course Revision #10

I. Give complete UMM catalog entry (deletions in strikethru font, additions underlined)(see instructions)

Math 4250. Variable topics in Pure Mathematics. (M/SR; 2 cr; repeatable when topic changes; QP-3250 or #; SP-3201 or equiv prereq #; offered when feasible)

II. Rationale (see instructions):

 

Course Revision #11

I. Give complete UMM catalog entry (deletions in strikethru font, additions underlined)(see instructions)

Math 3501f,s. Applied Deterministic Modeling for Management Science. (2 cr; QP– 1150 or 3605, Mgmt 1212, Mgmt 3220; SP– 1021 or 1101 or 1601 or 2601, Mgmt 2102, Mgmt 2201 or #)

II. Rationale (see instructions):

Delete reference to fall offering since Mgmt has changed this from required in the major to an elective in the major.

Course Revision #12

I. Give complete UMM catalog entry (deletions in strikethru font, additions underlined)(see instructions)

Math 3502f,s. Applied Probabilistic Modeling for Management Science. (2 cr; QP–1150 or 3605, Mgmt 1212, Mgmt 3220; SP–1021 or 1101 or 1601 or 2601, Mgmt 2102, Mgmt 2201 or #)

II. Rationale (see instructions):

Delete reference to fall offering since Mgmt has changed this from required in the major to an elective in the major.

Course Revision #13

I. Give complete UMM catalog entry (deletions in strikethru font, additions underlined)(see instructions)

Math 4901f. Senior Seminar. (M/SR; 0-1 cr; prereq sr)

This is a full-year course, required for all mathematics majors in their senior year. Students must attend year round and present one of the seminars.

II. Rationale (see instructions):

Delete possibility of zero credits.
