# Description of Mathematics & Statistics

DEGREE
A.S.—Mathematics

Program Description
Mathematics is a multifaceted subject of great beauty and
application. The study of mathematics explores some of the deepest
puzzles that have ever been encountered and equips the student with
a universal language used to study quantities and relationships in all
fields. The study of mathematics provides students with the ability to
think logically and abstractly and develop the problem-solving and
computational skills necessary for success in any field of study.

Career Opportunities

 Actuary Appraiser Assessor Auditor Biometrician Budget Analyst Casualty Rater Controller Computer Programmer Demographer Econometrician Engineering Analyst Epidemiologist Financial Analyst Investment Analyst Management Scientist Mathematician Operations Researcher Statistician Public Opinion Analyst Surveyor Systems Analyst Teacher Urban Planner

Most of these careers require education beyond the two-year college level.

Highlights
• A professional and innovative staff committed to providing the best
possible mathematics education, including multi-media, computer
assisted and distance education.

• A comprehensive mathematics curriculum addressing the needs of
both the transfer student and the non-transfer student

• A program integrating “hands-on” use of the computer

• A math center providing alternative modes of instruction and
tutorial support for students

• A program that uses assessment for proper placement of students

• A Mathematics, Engineering and Science Achievement
(MESA) program

• A Mathematics Teacher Preparation Program (MTPP)

Note to Transfer Students:
If you are interested in transferring to a four-year college or university
to pursue a bachelor’s degree in this major, it is critical that you meet
with a CRC counselor to select and plan the courses for your major.
Schools vary widely in terms of the required preparation. The courses
that CRC requires for an associate’s degree in this major may be
different from the requirements needed for the bachelor’s degree.

Mathematics (MATH)

MATH 20
Arithmetic
5 Units

Prerequisite: None
Hours: 90 hours LEC

This course provides instruction in the fundamentals of arithmetic with
emphasis on computational skills. Topics include whole numbers,
fractions, decimals, percents, ratios, proportions, problem solving,
and applications.

MATH 30
Pre-Algebra Mathematics
5 Units

Prerequisite: MATH 20 with a grade of “C” or better; or equivalent skills
demonstrated through the assessment process
Hours: 90 hours LEC

This course in pre-algebra mathematics emphasizes fundamental
operations on integers and decimals as well as in geometric figures,
measurement, and algebra. Topics include: fractions; decimals; signed
numbers; properties of exponents; scientific notation; conversions;
metric system; square and cube roots; formula evaluation; solving
equations; ratios; proportions; algebraic manipulations; descriptive
statistics; rectangular coordinate system; elementary calculator use.

MATH 81
Academic Skills in Mathematics
.25-2 Units

Prerequisite: None
Hours: 108 hours LAB

This course is designed for students concurrently enrolled in MATH
20, 30, 100, 101, 102, 106, 112, 120, or 125; placement can be made
through student request, instructor recommendation, or an assessment
process. This laboratory course provides assistance in math skills
to students enrolled in a non-transferable mathematics course.
Students may enter the course at any time during the first 12 weeks
of the semester and earn .25 to 2 units. Students may take the course
up to four times for credit, earning a maximum of eight units.
This course is graded on a credit/no-credit basis. MATH 81 is
recommended for students who are encountering difficulties in the
areas of math anxiety, basic skills, algebraic concepts or manipulation,
graphing, problem solving, etc.

MATH 82
Mathematics for Transfer Level    .25-2 Units
(formerly: Academic Skills in Mathematics)

Prerequisite: None
Hours: 108 hours LAB

This course is designed for students concurrently enrolled in MATH
300, 310, 335, 341, 343, 344, 350, 351, 370, 400, 401, 402, 410, 420,
or STAT 300. This laboratory course provides assistance in math skills
to students enrolled in a transferable mathematics or statistics course.
Students may enter the course at any time during the semester and
earn .25 to 2 units. Students may take the course up to four times for
credit, earning a maximum of eight units. This course is graded on a
credit/no-credit basis. MATH 82 is recommended for students who
are encountering difficulties in the areas of math anxiety, basic skills,
algebraic concepts or manipulations, graphing, statistics, problem
solving, etc.

MATH 83
Self Study Mathematics Modules
.25-1 Units

Prerequisite: None
Hours: 54 hours LAB

The course enables students to review specific math topics which are
necessary for success in MATH 20, 30, 100 or any course requiring
the skills taught in these classes. Learning objectives and the course
of study will be designed for each individual based on the needs of
the student. A partial list of modules includes fractions, decimals,
signed number arithmetic, percent, simplifying algebraic expressions,
factoring, and solving linear equations. The course may be taken for
credit a maximum of four times (with new learning objectives/activities
each time). Modules cannot replace any existing mathematics course,
and successful completion of MATH 83 currently does not satisfy any
mathematics prerequisite. MATH 83 is a credit/no-credit class and
students can enroll in the class at any time during the semester.
