Natural Sciences Division
Upon successful completion of Mt. San Antonio College’s Associate in Science in Mathematics for Transfer degree requirements, the student will have demonstrated understanding of differential and integral calculus of one and several variables including infinite series, vector analysis, partial derivatives and transcendental functions, as well as demonstrating knowledge of linear algebra and differential equations. This coursework will satisfy the lower division mathematics requirements at the California State University. Guaranteed admission with junior status to the CSU system will be granted in mathematics (or possibly statistics).
To earn an Associate in Science in Mathematics for Transfer a student must complete 60 semester units that are eligible for transfer to the CSU that consist of: IGETC pattern or CSU GE breadth and a major of at least 18 units. Students must have a minimum GPA of 2.0 in all CSU-transferable coursework to receive an associate degree for transfer and all courses in the major must be completed with a C or better. Students earning an associate degree for transfer will not be required to complete any other local graduation requirements.
|Course Prefix||Course Name||Units|
|MATH 180||Calculus and Analytic Geometry||4|
|MATH 181||Calculus and Analytic Geometry||4|
|MATH 280||Calculus and Analytic Geometry||5|
|MATH 285||Linear Algebra and Differential Equations||5|
|Choose one course from the following:||3-5|
|C++ Language and Object Development|
or MATH 110H
|Elementary Statistics - Honors|
|Total Units for Major||21-23|
|CSU General Education of IGETC Pattern 1||39-42|
Courses may be double-counted with either CSU-GE or IGETC.
Program Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this program, a student will be able to:
