Course Descriptions for Mathematics:(.html
The current (11-7-04) descriptions of mathematics courses that
part of the CAN system.
Descriptions from September_2002(pdf only)
In September, 2002, a group
mathematicians proposed these revisions to the CAN descriptions. These
have not proceeded further.

status of LDTP Numbering for
From Marshall Cates: 7 course descriptors for math were sent to
each campus with the instructions to send them to departments that
would teach these classes or articulate them.
They were: Calc-SV I, Calc SV II, Calc MV, ODE, Linear Algebra, ODE +
LA, Prob & Stat.
As of 2-6-06: The approval of these descriptors is still in process.

What: Participation and
on all areas of mathematics including applications to other disciplines.
The Sonoma State University Mathematics Department is inviting
mathematics students from Northern California to participate in an
mathematics conference. In this conference, undergraduates will have
opportunity to present and attend 15-minute talks about projects that
are working on. These projects could include undergraduate research
independent study projects, or any other independent work they are
that goes beyond the standard course curriculum. The conference will
conclude with an invited talk by John Martin
tailored toward undergraduate math students.
Students from all years of study are encouraged to participate and give
on any area of mathematics, including applications to other
While we do hope that many students will give a talk, we welcome all
to attend, as well as all faculty.
CONFERENCE SUPPORT: The Northern California
Mathematics Conference is partially funded by a grant from the National
Foundation and is administered through the Mathematical
of America (through DMS-0241090).
