Liberal Arts: Emphasis in Mathematics, Associate in Arts Degree
Banner Code: 2_AA_LAMA
Control Number: 19437
Financial Aid Eligible
This program is designed for students who desire a broad knowledge of liberal arts and sciences, plus additional course work in an “Area of Emphasis.” This program would be an ideal choice for students planning on transferring to the California State University (CSU) or University of California (UC), as the student may satisfy their general education requirements plus focus on transferable course work relating to baccalaureate majors at these institutions. Because admission and major preparation requirements vary at each transfer institution, courses used to fulfill requirements for an emphasis should be selected with the assistance of GWC Counselor.
Program Level Learning Outcomes
Upon completion of this program, students will be able to:
- Solve linear and non-linear equations in the real and complex number system.
- Calculate probabilities of independent and mutually exclusive events and conditional probability using appropriate formulas and theorems.
- Compute derivatives of basic functions and the derivatives of their sums, differences, products, quotients, and compositions.
- Solve right-angle and oblique triangles and use appropriate laws to solve applied problems.
- Perform matrix operations, evaluate determinants, and solve systems of linear equations using appropriate computational techniques.
- Solve first-order differential equations.
