This program provides a solid background for those who wish
to pursue a course of study in mathematics. Mathematicians
use mathematical theory, computational techniques,
algorithms, and the latest computer technology to solve
economic, scientific, engineering, physics, and business
problems. They conduct research in fundamental mathematics
and use the application of mathematical techniques to solve
problems in other fields such as science, actuarial science
and risk management.
Upon successful completion of the Mathematics AS degree, the student will be able to:
- Explain and apply principles of Mathematics.
- Perform problem solving and computational skills in the disciplines of Mathematics and others.
- Demonstrate proficiency in the use of computer technology.
- Use appropriate grammatical forms in both oral and written formats to communicate ideas and concepts.
- Identify and evaluate mathematical concepts in terms of ethical, societal, and global implications.
Students who plan to transfer to a four-year college or
university should check the requirements of that institution.
If they are significantly different from the courses listed, the
student should consult with an academic advisor.
The program in mathematics prepares a student for
transfer into a Bachelor’s degree program in pure or applied
mathematics. A minimum of a Master’s degree in mathematics
is required for most prospective mathematicians. The most
successful jobseekers will be able to apply mathematical theory
to real-world problems and will possess good communication,
teamwork, and computer skills. Mathematicians with a strong
background in computer science, electrical or mechanical
engineering or operations research should have good
opportunities in the industry.
