Two Year Schedule of Course Offerings
The offerings are tentative and may be changed, depending on student demand and faculty availability. No course outside the core courses can be guaranteed to be offered, nor offered in a particular quarter, nor at a time available to all students. However, we will do our utmost to honour the schedule. The department is responsible for setting the assignments in each quarter. The actual times are set by the Registrar in consultation with the department.
All recent changes or tentative information is in red italics. Last update - Oct 4, 2011.
This page is intended for those students planning a major or second major in mathematics, or a minor in mathematics, statistics, or computational science. Most required and many elective courses are offered at least once a year in the mathematics program. However, because some courses do not have large enough enrollments to be offered every year, they are offered every second year, usually alternating with a course of a similar nature, see the alternate year electives table below. Thus, with proper scheduling, every interested student should have an opportunity to take these courses during their senior or junior year. In addition, there are topics and other special courses that are offered on a less frequent basis, depending on student and faculty interest.
The tentative offerings for 2011-2012 and 2012-2013 (and 2010-2011 given for backward reference) are listed below. In the tables, the courses which are offered every year have the anticipated number of sections listed, and whether they are trailer sections, off-sequence sections, or advanced placement sections. This page will be updated quarterly.here. The advanced and elective courses in the tables below have direct links to the latest version of the mathematics catalogue. Some of these courses are still being developed as topic courses, so the link may point to the latest course web page. Additional useful links are to the mathematics program, the three area minor in mathematics (mathematics, statistics and computational science) and the double majors and two degrees web page. For additional information not on these web pages see or email the Head of the Mathematics Department.
Alternate year regular electives, specialized electives and topics courses, and independent study coursesAlternate Year Electives If demand warrants it, these courses may be offered more frequently.
Specialized Electives and Topics Courses The department plans to tentatively offer specialized electives and named topics courses per the tables below. Each spring the faculty, math majors and minors will be polled in the spring for their interest in these courses or any other topics courses to be taken the following year.. The courses selected will be based on student and faculty interest, but taking into account the importance of the courses for graduate school or BIG careers (business, industry, government).
In addition, the courses below have been offered in the last few years. If you are interested in a particular topics course, please contact the department head or the appropriate professor.
Independent Study Courses As part of the Rose-Hulman philosophy of focusing on the student we occasionally offer reading courses and independent study courses. Normally these courses will be offered only when there is significant enhancement to the students' education that is not available through the normally scheduled courses, e.g., advanced courses, or project / undergraduate research to prepare for graduate school or specific post-graduate careers. Permission of both the instructor and department head will be required. Since these courses are usually taught on top of a faculty member's normal teaching load, a rigorous justification will be required and enrollment would normally be limited to four students or less.
