Why Study Mathematics?

Mathematics reveals hidden patterns that help us understand the world around us.

Now much more than arithmetic and geometry, mathematics today is a diverse discipline that deals with data, measurements, and observations from science; with inference, deduction, and proof; and with mathematical models of natural phenomena, of human behavior, and social systems.

Getting Started

Always check course prerequisites when planning your schedule of classes. Plan well in advance to submit your prerequisite clearance request if you think you've already met the prerequisite requirement through another college.
