Modesto Junior College

Mathematics

Department of Mathematics

The Associate in Science in Mathematics for Transfer degree includes curriculum which focuses on the mastery of integration and differentiation and using these techniques to model real-world applications. The Associate in Science in Mathematics for Transfer degree is intended for students who plan to complete a bachelor’s degree in Mathematics or a related field of study offered at various campuses in the California State University system. Students completing this degree are guaranteed admission to the CSU system, but not to a particular campus or major. Students transferring to a CSU campus that accepts this degree will be required to complete no more than 60 units after transfer to earn a bachelor’s degree. This degree may not be the best option for students intending to transfer to a particular CSU campus or to a university or college that is not part of the CSU system. The Associate in Science in Mathematics for Transfer degree also offers the appropriate preparation for students who plan to complete a bachelor’s degree in Mathematics at various campuses in the University of California system. However, students completing this degree are not guaranteed admission to the UC system. In all cases, students should consult with a counselor for more information on university admission and transfer requirements.

PROGRAM LEARNING OUTCOMES

Upon satisfactory completion of this award, the student should be prepared to: 1. Successfully complete upper division coursework in mathematics. 2. Master the techniques of integration and differentiation. 3. Use these techniques to model real-world applications.

To earn an Associate in Science for Transfer degree in this major, the student must complete the requirements detailed in the Transfer Model Curriculum pathway.  All courses must be completed with a C or better.

 

 MJC MATH SEQUENCE 2017-2018:

math 

MATH 30 REPLACES MATH 70

MATH 70 is being offered as MATH 30.  Effective Summer 2017, students who previously completed MATH 70 may use MATH 70 in lieu of MATH 30 to satisfy award requirements and prerequisites.

WHAT IS STEM?

STEM (Science Technology Engineering & Mathematics) is a curricular pathway that prepares students to take calculus, and to be academically prepared for further study in fields such as medicine, engineering, biology, mathematics, computer programing and some business programs. Students who plan to major in STEM fields, must follow the pathway beginning with MATH 30.  Students are encouraged to talk to counselors about academic preparation for these fields of study.

NON STEM STUDENTS

Students who do not plan to pursue STEM study or do not need calculus or precalculus for their academic goals may follow the new non-STEM pathway that begins with MATH 29.

ACCELERATED FOUNDATIONAL MATH SEQUENCE

MJC is pleased to introduce MATH 9 and MATH 19 as a new, accelerated alternative to the MATH 10/20 sequence.  It allows students to complete the entire sequence in one semester instead of two, and for six units as opposed to nine units.  Students who would like to progress through the math sequence quickly are encouraged to enroll in these courses.

NON-CREDIT MODULES FOR FOUNDATIONAL MATH SKILLS

MATH 900 non-credit courses are self-paced skill building modules completed in a lab setting.  They provide students an opportunity to strengthen skills in specific MATH 9/10 and MATH 19/20 concepts prior to assessment.  Skill building may help students improve MJC Math placement test results.
