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.
Upon completion of this program, the student will be able to:
- 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 multivariable 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.
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.
The Associate Degree for Transfer (ADT) student completion requirements (as stated in SB1440 law):
(1) Completion of a minimum of 60 semester units or 90 quarter units that are eligible for transfer to the California State University, including both of the following:
(A) The California State University General Education-Breadth Requirements or the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC).
(B) A minimum of 18 semester units or 27 quarter units in a major or area of emphasis, as determined by the community college district.
(2) Obtainment of a minimum grade point average of 2.0.
