The Associate of Science in Mathematics for Transfer is intended for all students who plan to complete an AS in Mathematics. This degree is especially valuable for those students planning on completing a bachelor’s degree in Mathematics at a CSU campus because the Associate of Science in Mathematics for Transfer guarantees admission to the CSU system (but not to a particular campus or major).
Program Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion, the student will:
demonstrate an understanding of functions from multiple perspectives.
use numerical, graphical, symbolic, and verbal representations to solve problems and communicate with others.
use technology as a tool for exploring mathematical concepts.
demonstrate an ability to work with mathematical abstractions, analyze mathematical relationships, make plausible conjectures, and develop proofs.
synthesize their mathematical knowledge of engeneering technology.
