Either way it's worrying...
Have you seen how little they do in Project Maths? They don't even cover integral calculus...assuming what you say is correct then either:
They will dumb-down the course so that incoming PM'ers will find it subjectively as difficult as we did, but the course will cover less.
They will require extra ramp up material, like integral calculus, to bring incoming PM'ers up to the same level as previous LC students, in addition to the same material we already cover. This will make the course subjectively harder for new students, leading to a higher rate of failures and pressure to dumb-down the course.
Obviously either of these things are bad.
If what you say is not correct (not to accuse of lying, but just to show that either way it's a lose/lose situation), then:
The course will be the exact same as before. This will make the course subjectively harder for new students, leading to a higher rate of failures and pressure to dumb-down the course.
Ugh, Project Maths is so bent...
