Recommendations on the Undergraduate Mathematics Program for Work in Computing.
Duren, William L., Jr.
Presented is a program for the undergraduate mathematical preparation for work in computer science. Discussed are three types of courses: (1) mathematics courses of a general nature, which should be available for the prospective specialist in Computer Science, (2) technical courses in Computer Science, most of which will generally be taught outside the mathematics department, and (3) laboratory courses in Computer Science designed to acquaint the student with the scope and power of a high speed computer and with some of the techniques by which its potential can be realized. Separate programs for mathematics and for non-mathematics majors who plan to enter the field of computing are described. (RP)
