Question/Topic: Gordon rule 
Answer/Pointer: The State Board of Education Rule 6A-10.30(2), commonly known as the "Gordon Rule," specifies that all state universities require in all baccalaureate degree programs, satisfactory completion of 12 semester hours of English course work in which all students are required to produce written work of at least 26,000 words and completion of 6 hours of mathematics course work at the level of college algebra or higher. Subsection (3)(d) of the rule authorizes alternative plans to the subsection (2) requirements. This applies to students who entered college Spring 1983 or later. The rule is named after State Senator Jack D. Gordon of Miami Beach, who sponsored the bill in the state legislature that requires this.
