Foundational Math - Solving at Your Own Pace
Math 0920 Documentary



The mathematics department prepares students with strong skills in mathematical communication, problem-solving, and mathematical reasoning. This solid foundation enables students to transfer to other institutions of higher education, pursue advanced studies in math or related disciplines, and be prepared with occupational and technical skills to meet the needs of business and industry.

mission statement

The mathematics department at SLCC delivers services that meet the mathematical proficiency needs of a diverse student body at a premier comprehensive community college while enhancing the development and professional expertise of instructors to meet the changing needs of the student body. We:

  • Meet the quantitative literacy requirements of the College
  • Provide the necessary foundation for students whose incoming mathematical background is insufficient to succeed at collegiate-level mathematics
  • Deliver courses equivalent to the first two years of a traditional undergraduate mathematical sequence thus promoting the successful transfer to four-year institutions
  • Provide specialty courses for those students whose career plans require more specialized training
  • Support high school students by offering concurrent enrollment courses.

Math Program

An Associate of Science degree can be earned through the study of Mathematics. It requires a minimum of 63 credit hours of coursework, including 22 hours of mathematics courses and 8 hours of physics courses.

All classes are transferable to other schools in the state system of higher education and most other universities and colleges. These courses will prepare a student for completion of a mathematics or mathematics education degree at a four-year institution. Students in this program also complete General Education requirements.

Requirements at four-year colleges and universities are subject to change; ongoing planning is essential. Please see academic advisor.
