Mathematics Department

Department Main Graphic

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




 Fall 2014 SEMESTER

The Fall semester is well underway.  Keep working on your mathematics on a daily basis.



Student Learning Outcomes

  • Solve problems using mathematical terminology, symbols, operations, and techniques according to the course content and level of study.
  • Apply technology including calculators and computers to mathematical problems; Improve computational and problem-solving skills.
  • Construct mathematical models of “real life” problems and draw conclusions from these models.
  • Formulate and test mathematical conjectures.
  • Adapt general mathematical techniques to course-specific problems.
  • Display logical thought process
  • Value mathematical ways of thinking.
  • Students will be assessed through written homework, quizzes, tests, and/or oral and written projects.


  • A professional and innovative staff committed to providing the best possible mathematics education, including the use of computers and videos in the teaching of mathematics.
  • A comprehensive mathematics curriculum addressing the needs of both the transfer student and the non-transfer student.
