5. Items from Panel Members

  1. MTH 912 Descriptor Revision

Current Description:

The course must cover linear equations of the first order; linear equations with constant coefficients; the general linear equation; variation of parameters; undetermined coefficients; linear independence; the Wronskian; exact equations; separation of variables; and applications. In addition, the course must cover at least two of the following topics: systems of linear differential equations; solution of Laplace transforms; existence and uniqueness of solutions; solution by power series; oscillation and comparison theorems; partial differential equations; boundary value problems; numerical methods; and stability of solutions. Prerequisite: MTH 902, Calculus II.

small revision Fall 2014

Tentative Description:

The course must cover:  First-order equations (including initial value problems, basic numerical methods, existence and uniqueness of solutions, separable equations, linear equations, exact equations, substitution methods and applications).  Higher-order equations (including the general solution to homogeneous linear equations, linear independence, method of undetermined coefficients, the general solution to linear non-homogeneous equations, variation of parameters, and applications).  In addition to the above, the course must cover at least two of the following:  1. Solutions of initial value problems by Laplace transforms, 2. Power series solutions, 3. Partial differential equations and Fourier series, 4. Systems of linear differential equations, 5. Further numerical methods: improved Euler’s method, Taylor method, Runge-Kutta method, 6.  Non-cursory treatment of other advanced topics.

2.     Calculus Sequence Descriptors MTH 901, 902, 902 Revision
Old: 
The following description is for the full Calculus sequence:  Topics include (but are not limited to) the following: limits and continuity; definition of derivative: rate of change, slope; derivatives of polynomial and rational functions; the chain rule; implicit differentials; approximation by differentials; higher order derivatives; Rolle's Theorem: mean value theorem; applications of the derivative; anti-derivative; the definite integral; the fundamental theorem of calculus; area, volume, other applications of the integral; the calculus of the trigonometric functions; logarithmic and exponential functions; techniques of integration, including numerical methods; indeterminate forms: L'Hôpital's rule; improper integrals; sequences and series, convergence tests, Taylor series; functions of more than one variable, partial derivatives; the differential, directional derivatives, gradients; double and triple integrals: evaluation and applications. Prerequisite for Calculus I: College Algebra and Trigonometry with grades of C or better or Elementary Functions with a grade of C or better.

Note: When three courses are required to convey the necessary skills in calculus to mathematics majors, it is highly advised that students complete the entire sequence at a single institution. Course content may vary widely among institutions depending on the credits assigned to each course, and completing the sequence at a single institution is the best way to assure that neither credit nor content is lost in transfer.

Prerequisite for Calculus I: College Algebra and Trigonometry with grades of C or better, or Elementary Functions with a grade of C or better.
