UAA Math Changes & the Impact on all UAA Students
For all UAA Students:
Due to a mandate by the UA Board of Regents, the Department of Mathematics and Statistics has made changes in mathematics course numbering, titles, and descriptions effective Fall 2015. These changes feature:
Note that although the numbers, names, and course descriptions may have changed, the content of the courses has not. I am attaching a document that will help smooth the transition to the new names and numbers.
How could this affect you?
To more closely align with our colleagues at UAS and UAF as mandated by the Board of Regents, we will no longer accept SAT or ACT scores for course placement. Students must earn an appropriate score on the ACCUPLACER test or take the prerequisite course to enroll in a math class. As it has been for several years, the ACCUPLACER score only lasts for one year.
Please do not hesitate to contact me at UAAMathchanges@gmail.com or at 786-1312 if you have any questions.
The Department of Mathematics and Statistics seeks to provide students with a quality education in the fields of Mathematics and Statistics. The Department offers baccalaureates (BA/BS) in Mathematics. It also offers undergraduate minors in Mathematics and Statistics for students majoring in another area. In addition, the Department delivers excellent service courses in statistics for other programs; courses that lead to minor in statistics; courses of advanced topics, and research advising for students across all disciplines. The Programs of the Mathematical Sciences Department are offered by the College of Arts & Sciences.
The mission of the Mathematics Program is, through excellence in instruction, quality research and scholarly activities, valuable and expert resources to the community, curriculum, and academic advising, to inspire our students to develop the knowledge and skills to understand, communicate and apply mathematical ideas.
Your generous support helps ensure that our students can receive a first-class education right here in Alaska, and helps encourage Alaska's best and brightest to remain a part of our community.A gift to UAA Department of Mathematics & Statistics is an investment in Alaska's future.
