Rose-Hulman - Department of Mathematics - Course Syllabus Web Page


This syllabus archive contains the current or most recent syllabus and topics list for courses taught by the Mathematics Department which are freshman and sophomore required courses for other programs . The documents are modified from year to year and are updated once the new ones are established. The documents are either in HTML or PDF format (so noted in the table of syllabi in the navigation panel), from which the syllabus may be printed out. There are two types of documents in the table of syllabi:

  1. a general syllabus outlining goals, course topics, course policies and so on, and
  2. a topics list giving specific sections of material from the text.

A list of current commonly taught, required courses and obsolete courses with their equivalencies, approximate equivalencies, and replacement courses is given below. The source documents and syllabi from previous years are archived here (restricted to RHIT Mathematics Dept.).

Text Transition: During years in which there is a text transition in Calculus or DE classes which have already begun the sequence will use the text and syllabus from the previous year the are noted as MA113 previous and MA212 previous.

General Policies

Several policies which guide the instruction of our courses, especially lower division courses are:
