Mathematics (104)
Associate in Science Degree

The Mathematics program prepares the student for transfer to senior-level institution for work in mathematics or for a career as a mathematics technician in business, industry, or government.  A strong mathematics background is highly desirable for those who wish to pursue a career in economics or business administration.

Courses in technology, although not designed for transfer to four-year liberal arts programs, will satisfy the elective requirement.  Intermediate Algebra, College Algebra, Trigonometry and Functions, Technical Mathematics I and II CANNOT be used as credit toward an Associate Degree in Mathematics. This is a Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics (STEM) program.

Program Competencies 

The student/graduate will be able to:

  • Utilize appropriate technology for mathematics applications.
  • Work in a team setting to propose, define, and solve mathematical applications
  • Perform integration and differentiation techniques.
  • Solve calculus-based applications to the natural sciences and engineering.
  • Demonstrate calculus concepts analytically and graphically.

Minimum - 60 credits


First Semester (14)


Second Semester (17)


Third Semester (13/16)


Fourth Semester (13/16)


Note(s):


1 Students should review the catalog of the transfer institution before selecting electives.

2 Either Differential Equations or Linear Algebra must be taken to satisfy the Mathematics curriculum requirements.  However, it is highly recommended both courses are taken.
