The mathematics program provides students the opportunity to complete the lower-division coursework required for four-year programs in mathematics. This program is for students who plan to transfer to a California State University (CSU). Completion of the CSU General-Breadth or IGETC general education pattern is required. It is highly recommended that students meet with a counselor because major and general education requirements vary for each college/university.
Mathematicians work as statisticians, analysts, computer programmers, actuaries, researchers, planners, and educators. This major is designed to meet the lower-division requirements for most bachelor’s degrees in Mathematics.
- explain and apply basic concepts of single variable calculus including various forms of derivatives and integrals, their interconnections, and their uses in analyzing and solving real-world problems.
- explain and apply basic concepts of multivariate calculus, linear algebra, or differential equation techniques, their interconnections, and their uses in analyzing and solving real-world problems.
- write logical proofs of basic theorems.
- use appropriate applications to demonstrate mathematical problem solving.
Associate in Science for Transfer Degree
The Associate in Science in Mathematics for Transfer (AS-T) degree may be obtained by completion of 60 transferable, semester units with a minimum 2.0 GPA, including (a) the major or area of emphasis described in the Required Program, and (b) either the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) or the California State University General Education-Breadth Requirements.
