Minutes
=======
1) Thoo proposed that in 2015--2016, Math 10 be offered in the Spring only (instead of Fall and Spring), and that Math 17 be offered in the Fall (for the first time). There was general agreement to do that.
2) Thoo reminded everyone that the counselors have proposed that we offer Math 51 in the Spring instead of the Fall. Their reason is that they believe offering Math 51 in the Spring will enable them to get more students to enroll in the course. They feel that students do not want to take both Math 51 and Math 15 in the same semester, so, by offering Math 51 in the Spring, students can take Math 50 (Fall), 51 (Spring), 52 (Summer), 15 (Fall), 16 (Spring). It was said that that sounds ambitious, but maybe we should give it a try. If we were to do that, then we agreed that Math 58 should be offered in the Fall. The earliest that we could do this would be Math 58 in Fall 2015 and 51 in Spring 2016. However, that would mean one year without Math 51. We agreed that we need to decide this before the College puts together the courses for Fall 2015 (which may be soon).
3) We agreed that, because of the shortage of available f-t instructors, some singletons in Spring 2015 may have to be staffed by adjunct instructors. We have been authorized to hire two temporary f-t adjunct instructors for Spring 2015. Offers have been made, but only Lewis Felver has accepted so far. Thoo will have to continue to reach out to our adjunct instructors.
4) The stats instructors will decide which adjunct instructors who meet MQ to teach stats will be offered Stat 1 in Spring 2015. They will give the names to Karsten Stemmann.
5) We selected classes for our Spring 2015 load. We followed the following order for selecting classes:
