Mathematics (MATH)

Degrees

The following Mathematics degrees are offered:

DEGREE
A.S. — Mathematics

Required Program (units)
MATH 400    Calculus I (5)
MATH 401    Calculus II (5)
MATH 402    Calculus III (5)
MATH 410    Introduction to Linear Algebra (3)
MATH 420    Differential Equations (4)
Plus select one of the following courses: 4
  CISP 360    Introduction to Structured Programming (4)
  CISP 370    Beginning Visual BASIC (4)
TOTAL UNITS REQUIRED 26

Associate of Science Degree (AS) may be obtained by completion of the Required Program, plus General Education requirements, plus sufficient electives to meet a 60-unit total.

This degree is designed to allow students to meet common lower division requirements for a major in mathematics at many four-year transfer institutions. Required courses for this degree may also fulfill lower division requirements for four-year degrees in computer science and engineering.

Program Student Learning Outcomes
Upon completion of this program, the student will be able to:

- apply quantitative thinking processes and reasoning skills in upper division academic work and/or workplace tasks.
- recognize and construct valid arguments using deductive and inductive reasoning skills.
- define and utilize terminology of mathematics with emphasis in calculus, linear algebra, and either statistics, logic or problem solving.
- communicate mathematical concepts to varied audiences.
- solve problems collaboratively.
- use mathematical tools essential to success in upper division math courses.
- select learning strategies that are appropriate for them.

The Associate in Science in Mathematics for Transfer Degree program provides students with a major that fulfills the general requirements for transfer to the California State University. Students with this degree will receive priority admission with junior status to the California State University system. Students should work closely with their Folsom Lake College counselor to ensure that they are taking the appropriate coursework to prepare for majoring in Mathematics at the Institution they wish to transfer to because major and general education requirements may vary for each CSU and the degree may only transfer to specific institutions.

This program has the following completion requirements:
1. Completion 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 Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) or the California State University General Education - Breadth Requirements.
    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.
ADTs also require that students must earn a C or better in all courses required for the major or area of emphasis.

Program Student Learning Outcomes
Upon completion of this program, the student will be able to:
• explain and apply basic concepts of single variate 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.
