New:  000571 - honor student and Math 2573H
Old:  000571 - honors student
Editor Comments: New:  <no text provided>
Old:  This is a copy of MATH 3574: Honors Mathematics IV
Proposal Changes: New:  change enforced prerequisites to include Math 2573H
change course equivalency to list: Math 2243/2373 alone
 without 2573H (which is prerequisite for course)
change term most frequently offered to spring rather than
 Fall and spring
change consent requirement to no required consent
Old:  Added "credit will not be granted if credit has been received for Math 2243 and Math 2373" to reference the fact that this is the Honors course that covers linear algebra and differential equations; removed "or equiv." from prereq [2573 or equiv'" as no one takes this course without taking Math 2573H; removed "IT Honors office approval" as permission for entry is now UHP rather than ITH; changed "meets Honors req of Honors" to "meets HonorsUHP req of UHP"

Student Learning Outcomes: * Student in the course:

- Can identify, define, and solve problems


Please explain briefly how this outcome will be addressed in the course. Give brief examples of class work related to the outcome.

Problem solving is at the heart of any mathematics course. In this course some problems would involve purely mathematical issues, like integrating a function of several variables. Other problems involve taking a real world situation like modeling the growth of a population of bacteria or the concentration of a chemical in a solution, requiring students to first identify the mathematically relevant aspects, then define appropriate mathematical variables and relations, and finally solve the resulting mathematics problem.

How will you assess the students' learning related to this outcome? Give brief examples of how class work related to the outcome will be evaluated.

Every assignment, exam, and lecture focuses on problem-solving, and students will have ample feedback about their problem-solving skills in this course.
