Math Department



The Mathematics Department provides math instruction that enables and empowers students of varying mathematical needs in a supportive environment through the use of up-to-date methodologies and curriculum. Every effort is made to improve our students' mathematical literacy to ensure success in their future coursework, careers, and life.

The curriculum is a broad range of courses that:

  • Build a solid mathematical foundation for students of all ages and skill levels;
  • Develop the students' analytical, problem solving, and critical thinking skills; and
  • Provide students with the mathematical skills necessary for successful transfer to four-year institutions.

Our departmental student learning outcomes (DSLOs) are:

  • Students will be able to apply mathematical concepts and reasoning skills to model and solve real world problems.
  • Students will be able to communicate mathematically.
  • Students will be able to formulate conclusions and judge the reasonableness of the conclusions by analyzing and interpreting data in a variety of forms including equations, tables and graphs.
  • Students will be able to use a variety of approaches such as pattern recognition, modeling, logical reasoning, and estimation to solve mathematical problems and judge the reasonableness of their results.
  • Students will be able to use appropriate technology to enhance their mathematical thinking and understanding
