Some colleges striving to provide for their students a variety of courses sufficient to allow entry into the third year of a Mathematics Major program at university urged that a study of program requirements for a Math Major and of the status of present offerings at BC colleges be undertaken.
In this regard, the Mathematics Flexible Pre-Major Analysis Project Report gives an insight into the challenges and opportunities for students, colleges and universities. It also suggests a set of first-and second-year courses that should form the core of a Math Pre-Major program. The BCcupms approved the recommendations of the original report in May 2006.
At its May 2008 meeting, the BCcupms endorsed an updated version of the course details for the Mathematics Flexible Pre-Major.
At its May 2011 meeting, the BCcupms endorsed an further revised version of the course details for the Mathematics Flexible Pre-Major.
In Fall 2019, the following update to the Mathematics Flexible Pre-Major was submitted to BCCAT, following consultation with those institutions who offer the Math major programs..
