mlnosbis 12/9/2016: The CIM Form should match the syllabus and contain all information, such as the "Making the Connection", "Course Meetings", and MFM Program Internship Requirements" sections. The CIM form does not need to include the university PRRs, but all other information should be in the CIM form. Also note that this course is not available for audit but the CIM form does not have other options (error). This is S/U only.

ABGS Reviewer Comments:
-the syllabus does not include an explanation of how participation (which is 50% of the grade) is judged beyond evaluation by faculty
-for the abbreviated title I suggest "Math," which people understand as a word rather than "Mathem"
-there is no schedule, which is understandable for an internship
