MATHEMATICS

A.S. DEGREE

Description
This program is intended for students planning to transfer to a four year college to major in Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Mathematics Education, Statistics, or a related field.  The course work in this program is generally equivalent to the first two years of a typical four year program in Mathematics.  Successful completion of this program will demonstrate preparation for continued study in Mathematics at the junior or senior level.
Admission to this program requires that the student has completed MTH 175 (Precalculus) with a grade of C or higher, or high school Precalculus with a grade of (B) 83 or higher, or MCC Level 10 Mathematics placement..
Students in this program are encouraged to consult with an advisor in the Mathematics Department.
(Housed in the Mathematics Department)


Program Learning Outcomes
1) Formulate mathematical arguments.
2) Express mathematical ideas in various ways such as symbolically graphically numerically or verbally.
3) Analyze quantitative information in various problem solving situations.
4) Develop mathematical models of applications in various disciplines.
5) Use mathematical models to solve problems in various disciplines.
6) Use appropriate technologies to explore mathematical concepts.


Requirements for Program Entrance

    NOTE:
    Students planning to transfer to a SUNY college or university must also fulfill the SUNY General Education requirements.

    All Mathematics courses and many courses in other disciplines have prerequisites that must be satisfied. When planning their schedules, students should refer to the Course Descriptions section of the Catalog and Student Handbook to view course prerequisites.

    *MTH 160 (Statistics I) is the prerequisite for MTH 161 (Statistics II.) Students choosing MTH 161 as their Mathematics elective must first take MTH 160 as an elective, unless MTH 160 has previously been completed.

    **Choose one: BIO 155 and BIO 156, or CHE 151 and CHE 152, or GEO 101 and GEO 102, or PHY 154 and PHY 155, or PHY 161 and PHY 261.
***MTH 220 (Discrete Mathematics) is strongly recommended for students majoring in Mathematics. Students planning to transfer to a SUNY school should take MTH 220 as their program elective.
