State law AB 705 changed the way that students are placed into their Math courses. Some prerequisite courses have been eliminated. Other courses now have a support component to help students review the prerequisite material. The video below will guide you in choosing which Math class is right for you.
The Mathematics Department is dedicated to providing each student with an education that stresses high quality instruction. Our dynamic, knowledgeable faculty provides a supportive atmosphere which includes mentoring students through a “hands-on” approach to instruction. Students will gain the skills they need, whether they are working to meet professional goals, earn an AA or AS degree, or plan on transferring to a 4-year university.
What we offer:
a full range of mathematics courses
Supplemental Instruction in numerous courses
courses taught using free Open Educational Resources
the use of computer aided instruction — such as MyMathLab
the sponsoring of an on-campus Math Club which competes twice a year in a competition hosted by the American Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges Student Mathematics League
Our department offers classes both throughout the day, and in the evenings. Classes are typically no more than 35 students, providing a low teacher-to-student ratio and increasing direct access to instructors. We offer Trigonometry, Finite Math, Statistics, College Algebra and Intermediate Algebra in online and/or hybrid formats.
Our students have an exceptional rate of transfer to and success in U.C. system schools and other 4-year universities and colleges.
We offer review videos for all of our mathematics courses:
