West Valley College offers two degrees for mathematics, an Associate of Arts degree in Mathematics and an Associate of Science - Transfer in Mathematics.
The Associate in Science in Mathematics for Transfer degree 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, operation, 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 course-specific problems.
Students must complete the following requirements:
Students are not required to complete the information competency requirements, PE requirements or cultural diversity requirements found in other degrees at the College.
