# 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
Academic Skills in
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

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

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
