Math Program at Miramar College
Mathematics is the study of numbers, structures, and associated relationships using rigorously defined literal, numerical and operational symbols. Given certain conditions about systems of numbers or other objects, mathematicians derive conclusions based on logical arguments. Basic mathematical skills enable a person to solve numerical problems encountered in daily life, and more advanced skills have numerous applications in the physical, social and life sciences.
Program Goals and/or Outcomes
The mathematics curriculum includes courses that range from basic skills through differential equations. The basic skills and associate degree level courses provide students with the mathematical preparation necessary for study in other disciplines, as well as for degree and transfer requirements. Successful completion of this curriculum a mathematics degree will develop competence in mathematics through differential and integral calculus, providing an adequate background for employment in many technological and scientific areas as well as providing a firm foundation for students planning advanced study in mathematics, engineering, or physical sciences.
Student Learning Outcomes
Upon completion of the program the students will able to:
- Demonstrate ability to apply mathematical skills to achieve academic and professional goals
- Demonstrate an ability to apply critical thinking in problem solving
- Demonstrate sufficient mathematical knowledge for further academic study in mathematics or related disciplines
- Demonstrate ability to analyze and solve mathematical problems in everyday life
