While we agree with Edwin E. Moise's sentiment that it is "unrealistic to judge a curriculum by its general outline, or to judge a course by its syllabus" (Moise, E.E. Activity and motivation in mathematics, Amer. Math. Monthly 72, 1965, 407-412.), the Transfer Evaluation Committee for the Department of Mathematics evaluates courses only on content, not on how effective the course was at having the students learn that content.   We record here the minimum  content requirements for standard introductory courses to transfer to Michigan as something other than departmental credit.  These minimums reflect the core material that these courses cover in order to satisfy the requirements of courses and academic programs at the University of Michigan for which they are prerequisites.  Because courses at other colleges and universities are structured around a different set of requirements, many will be very good college- or university-level courses that do not cover the material indicated here.  Such courses will be given departmental credit.
