Changes in the calculus sequence
Effective Fall 2001, the calculus series at SSU was revised. The vector calculus course Math 261, which was titled Calculus III, is now called Calculus IV, and the old Math 231 Differential Equations has been combined with some linear algebra, increased to 4 units, and retitled Math 241 Calculus III. As you might guess from the renumbering, the Math Department prefers that all students take the series in the order I through IV. However, since differential equations is not required for the B.S. in physics with a concentration in applied physics or for the BA in physics with the calculus option, students who have completed Calculus II and first semester physics will be permitted to take the new Calculus IV (Math 261) without taking Math 241 first. Students who choose the B.S. in physics without the concentration will continue to take all four courses, and may take the last two in either order.
