UMM ACADEMIC AFFAIRS 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) 

II. Rationale (see instructions): 
We are expanding two required fourcredit courses, Pure Math I and Pure Math II, to three required fourcredit 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 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) 

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;

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 4201 
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 4211 
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; 
II. Rationale (see instructions): 

Course Revision #8
I. Give complete UMM catalog entry (deletions in strikethru font, additions underlined)(see instructions) 
Math 4231 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 3000level 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; 
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; 
II. Rationale (see instructions): 

Course Revision #11
I. Give complete UMM catalog entry (deletions in strikethru font, additions underlined)(see instructions) 
Math 3501 
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 3502 
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; This is a fullyear 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.
