(Effective Fall 2019)

*Why did the Mathematics Department make these changes?*

*Why did the Mathematics Department make these changes?*

- Our primary goal was to improve success rates in our calculus courses.
- All of the new courses are taught three days per week, whereas MATH 160, 170, and 210 were taught four days per week. This change should reduce student workload and scheduling difficulties.
- Our new Calculus II course (MATH 152) covers multivariable differential calculus (previously covered in MATH 210 – Calculus III) with sequences and series being moved to MATH 270 (Optimization and Approximation). Covering multivariable differential calculus sooner is beneficial to natural science majors.

*If I matriculated prior to fall 2019, how will I complete my major or minor if a required calculus course will no longer be taught?*

*If I matriculated prior to fall 2019, how will I complete my major or minor if a required calculus course will no longer be taught?*

*No student will be left unable to complete their desired major and minor.*- The Mathematics Department has worked closely with other departments on campus to ensure a smooth transition to the new curriculum, including appropriate course substitutions. Students are strongly encouraged to consult with their academic advisor to discuss any required mathematics courses they still need to complete, as well as the recommended substitutions.
