The object of this paper has been to study the opinions of graduates and present students about the required math hours (presently three hours) at Ouachita Baptist University. It has formerly been my opinion that this may be insufficient math background for many of our students going out seeking jobs. Many times the student, while still in college does not realize he may need more math but it may show up on graduate tests, in his occupational work, or personal matters such as income tax calculations, bookkeeping, or budgeting.
To compile the opinions of students on this subject a form letter, such as the one included on the 5th : page of this report, was sent to a number of present OBU students whose names were chosen at random. Also, a different form (also ·included) was sent to former graduates of Ouachita to compare their opinions with the students and my own.
