Mathematical Sciences Division
The degree provides the student with sufficient depth to support a lifelong interest in mathematics, and is suitable for the student who plans to transfer in mathematics. The core of the major is the calculus sequence, in which the student will acquire a conceptual understanding of the principles of differential and integral calculus for functions of one and several variables, as well as the ability to apply calculus techniques in a variety of applications. One course in Differential Equations with Linear Algebra is required, as well as one additional course to provide the student with greater breadth in mathematics. Competency will be assessed by evaluating the student’s ability to solve a wide range of calculus and other mathematical problems.
At least 8 units for this degree must be completed at El Camino College.
