Associate in Science in Mathematics for Transfer Degree (A.S.-T in Mathematics)

The Associate in Science in Mathematics for Transfer degree (AS-T in Mathematics) is a 60 unit program which is designed to provide lower division education to students planning to transfer to a CSU institution in pursuit of a baccalaureate degree in Mathematics. Students completing the program will be able to solve problems using mathematical symbols, operations, and techniques; apply appropriate technology including calculators and computers to the solution of mathematical problems; demonstrate computational, estimation, and problem-solving skills; construct mathematical models of physical problems, draw conclusions from these models, and communicate those conclusions; formulate and test mathematical conjectures; and adapt general mathematical techniques to coursespecific problems.

Students must complete the following requirements:

  • 60 semester or 90 quarter CSU-transferable units
  • the California State University-General Education-Breadth pattern (CSU GE-Breadth); OR the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) pattern.
  • a minimum of 18 semester or 27 quarter units in the major or area of emphasis as determined by the community college district.
  • obtainment of a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 2.0.
  • earn a grade of C or better in all courses required for the major or area of emphasis.

Students are not required to complete the information competency requirements, PE requirements or cultural diversity requirements found in other degrees at the College.

Associate of Science Degree

After completing an A.A. degree in Mathematics, a student will be able to:

  • Demonstrate computational, estimation, and problem-solving skills.
  • Formulate and test mathematical conjectures.
  • Adapt general mathematical techniques to course-specific problems.
  • Solve problems using mathematical symbols, operations, and techniques appropriate to the course content and level of study.
  • Apply appropriate technology including calculators and computers to the solution of mathematical problems
  • Construct mathematical models of physical problems, draw conclusions from these models, and communicate their conclusions
