Degrees & Certificates

The following Mathematics degrees and certificates 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.

DEGREE
AS-T — 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)
TOTAL UNITS REQUIRED 22

Students are required to:
- Complete a minimum of 19 semester units in the major with a grade of C or better while maintaining a minimum grade point average (GPA) of at least 2.0 in all CSU transferable coursework.
- Complete 60 semester CSU-transferable units using the California State University-General Education-Breadth pattern (CSU-GE Breadth); OR the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) pattern. 
- No more than 60 semester units are required.

This mathematics program provides students the opportunity to complete the lower-division coursework required for a program in a mathematics related field at a California State University (CSU). This program is for students who plan to transfer. Completion of the CSU General-Breadth or IGETC general education pattern is required. It is highly recommended that students meet with a counselor and department faculty because major and general education requirements may vary for each CSU and the degree may only transfer to specific institutions. .

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.
