Kate Stevenson writes… The project of making up the modules has had an unanticipated windfall for the consistency of the class.  Math 103 has a common final, which is commonly graded…Having the problem modules available to the public allows the instructors to know what to focus on in their class.  Having the GA’s work through the modules according to a common schedule will also help the instructors to follow along with that schedule.  We have also made the source code from the problems available to all instructors…The idea is that they will find it useful for making up their class tests by simply modifying the problems.

Well I think the MATH 103L shouldn't be mandatory, if you have a score of 24 in MPT I or you have a B- or higher in MATH 102, what's missing here with most people failing MATH 103 is a gap of the fluidity of the prerequisite materials. Also MATH 103 is not only open to business majors, you can take it if you are a Computer Information Technology major in the Computer Science department as well, and most people that are CIT majors take 103 as it's required as a prerequisite for some of our business courses.
