Mathematics

About This Program:

The A.A. and A.S. Mathematics program builds a strong mathematical foundation and prepares students for a Baccalaureate degree in engineering, physics,  applied and pure mathematics, and other STEM careers (science, technology,. engineering and mathematics) at most four-year institutions by providing the required mathematics courses required at most institutions during the freshman and sophomore years for these specialties.

What You Will Learn:

  • Graduates will demonstrate proficiency in applying fundamental concepts in differential calculus.
  • Graduates will demonstrate proficiency in applying fundamental concepts of integral calculus.
  • Graduates will demonstrate proficiency in applying fundamental concepts of linear algebra.
  • Graduates will demonstrate proficiency in applying fundamental concepts of ordinary differential equations.

Program Benefits:

The significance of STEM specialties, with mathematics at its core, has been widely recognized by its implications for workforce development, national security concerns and immigration policy. A strong mathematics foundation is a requirement for many highly regarded careers. Research shows that mathematicians have better jobs. A.S. degree in mathematics leads directly to B.S. and more advanced degrees in fields such as Physics, Actuarial Science, Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Statistics, Computer Science, Computational Science, Psychology, Biochemistry, Robotics, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Electronics, Mechanical Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Information Science, Civil Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Astrophysics, Astronomy, Optics, Nanotechnology, Nuclear Physics, Mathematical Biology, Operations Research, Neurobiology, Biomechanics, Bioinformatics, Acoustical engineering, Geographic Information Systems, Atmospheric Sciences, Educational/Instructional technology, Software Engineering, and Educational Research.
