Mathematics (LAM)

This program of study is recommended for transfer students planning to earn a baccalaureate degree with a major in mathematics. It is recommended that students entering the program have four units of high school academic math.

The Associate in Arts (A.A.) degree is awarded upon completion of the requirements for this program.

Students who complete the LAM program will:

  • Demonstrate knowledge and skills in single and multivariable calculus;

  • Communicate mathematics with understanding and clarity;

  • Use technology to support problem solving and an understanding of mathematical topics;

  • Read and understand formal mathematical proofs and construct a well formed mathematical proof.

Courses should be selected in consultation with an advisor.

NOTES: 

a. A sequence in a natural science is required. Applicable sequences are:
Biology: BIO 105-106
Chemistry: CHE 121-122
Physics: PHY 151-152
LAM students should meet with the LAM program chair to discuss the appropriate science courses to take in order to meet the requirements of the transfer school. Some transfer schools have specific science course requirements for mathematics majors. For some transfer schools, the PHY 121-122 sequence may be applicable.

b. General Education Elective: Courses applicable to this program are listed in the General Education Appendices E, F, H (if THE 120 was not taken), and I, and students must select from one appendix in order to guarantee that they have courses from a total of 7 appendices. See the list of the General Education Appendices.

c. Courses applicable to this program are: (a) specific courses listed above; (b) courses applicable in all programs; CPS 142, CPS 231, or WFE 101. Student who plan to pursue a degree in applied mathematics should take CPS 142, and also take the third math course from MAT 230, MAT 215, MAT 224. Those students who plan to pursue a degree in actuarial sciences should take ECO 201 and ECO 202.

d.  Read a full discussion of the free elective requirement. Students must select a course outside of the MAT subject area.
