Summary

The National Study of Mathematics Requirements for Scientists and Engineers is concerned with establishing the mathematics experiences desired for the many specializations in science and engineering, such as microbiology, organic chemistry, electrical engineering, and molecular physics. An instruction and course content sheet and a course recommendation form were sent to over 9,000 scientists and engineers. The data were analyzed and are reported in quintiles for each specialization. Some of the general conclusions were as follows: (1) mathematics courses should have equal emphasis on theory and application, (2) with the exception of group theory, there was little need for courses such as functional analysis, modern algebra, and mathematical logic, (3) most of the high recommendations were for applied courses such as vectors, the many types of differential equations, applied statistics, and machine computation, and (4) comparisons of categories within each specialization showed little differences in recommendations for most specializations.
