An exception has been granted to the Catalog Year Policy to allow one of the changes in this proposal to be effective in Fall 2019 (202001). MTH 306 is now by department approval only because it was replaced by MTH 264 and MTH 265 in Summer 2019. Allowing this change will mean students in MTH 264/265 do not have to be granted overrides from the department to register for the class.

The addition of MTH 253 is not effective until Summer 2020 (202100).

Proposal

Proposal ID: 106793
Type: Change Course
Submission Date: May 8, 2019 3:50pm
Approval Date: August 12, 2019 2:25pm
Effective Term: Summer 2020
Justification:
This proposal makes two modifications to the list of required prerequisites for MTH 452.

The first modification is the addition of MTH 253 (Infinite Series and Sequences) to the list. Currently, the prerequisites for MTH 452 allow a student to enter the course without exposure to Taylor series; however, Taylor's theorem is needed in MTH 452 to derive error estimates. MTH 253 will expose a student to Taylor series and Taylor's theorem before taking MTH 452.

The second modification is in response to the Math department's recent decision to replace the 10-week, 4 credit course MTH 306 (Matrix and Power Series Methods) with two 5-week, 2 credit courses: MTH 264 (Introduction to Matrix Algebra) and MTH 265 (Introduction to Series). Accordingly, this proposal replaces MTH 306 with (MTH 264 and MTH 265) in the list of prerequisites for MTH 452.

After these two modifications, the prerequisites for MTH 452 ensure that a student entering the course has been exposed to ODEs (through MTH 256), matrix algebra (through MTH 306 or MTH 341 or MTH 264) and infinite series (through MTH 306 or MTH 253 or MTH 265).

This change of prerequisites for MTH 452 has been discussed extensively and approved by the Math department's Numerical Analysis Curricular Group and Undergraduate Curriculum Committee.
Comments:
In response to Professor David Roundy's comment: While both MTH 256 and its equivalent honors section 256H (similarly MTH 264/264H, MTH 265/265H, and MTH 306/306H) are listed among the "enforced prerequisites” in the proposal, the category “prerequisite logic” clarifies that only one of the two courses is required.

It looks like it now requires both MTH 254 and MTH 254H, etc?

I presume this is a typo. The syllabus make it clear that these are alternatives.

Also, don't honors sections automatically satisfy any prereq for the same course number?
