Associate of Science (A.S.) in Science
Transfer Pattern - Mathematics
General Education - 36-39 Credits
General Education Requirements:
General Education Electives:
(Choose courses in each category from the list of approved General Education courses . One 3-credit General Education course must be a Diversity course.)
- Arts and Humanities 3 Credits.
- Social and Behavioral Sciences (from 2 different disciplines) 6 Credits.
- Biological and Physical Sciences (from 2 different disciplines or 2-course sequence, 1 with a lab) 7-8 Credits. **
- Mathematics (MATH 165 or higher recommended) 3-5 Credits.
- Wellness and Health 3 Credits.
- Information Technology 3 Credits. *
- Global, Historical and Cultural Perspectives 2 Credits.
Electives - 24-31 Credits
Recommended (Select 16 credits):
Total Credits Required for Degree: ***60 min.
* CSIT 155 is suggested. However, CSIT 101 or
may be taken instead, depending on the student’s background.
** Recommended science courses for transfer to B.S. program in Mathematics are: PHYS 151 , BIOL 104 , BIOL 106 , BIOL 110 , CHEM 121 , or CHEM 123 , depending on the transfer program and institution.
***A new college orientation requirement, completion of the one-credit ACDV 101 course, Transitioning to College, went into effect spring 2010. If you are a credit student who is new to college (meaning you have not successfully completed college coursework at another institution(s)), you are required to take ACDV 101 during your first semester at CCBC, thereby increasing the number of credits required for the degree to a minimum of 61 credits. Students are required to provide an official transcript(s) to document successful completion of college coursework at another institution(s) in order for this requirement to be waived.
Transfer Pattern Outcomes:
Upon successful completion of this transfer pattern, students will be able to:
- evaluate limits of one-variable functions and of multi-variable functions; definite, indefinite, and improper integrals; double integrals in rectangular and in polar coordinates; triple integrals in rectangular, cylindrical, and spherical coordinates; line and surface integrals; and solve first order differential equations;
- determine continuity and differentiability of one-variable functions and of multi-variable functions; the derivative of a one-variable function by the definition and by rules; partial derivatives of multi-variable functions by the definitions and by rules; optimal values (extrema) of one-variable functions and of multivariable functions; the convergence/divergence of a sequence and of a series;
- apply theorems (including: Mean Value Theorem, Intermediate Value Theorem, Rolle’s Theorem, Fundamental Theorem of Calculus, L’Hôpital’s Rule, Green’s Theorem, and Stokes’ Theorem) and mathematical processes to solve real-world application problems;
- compute eigenvalues, eigenvectors, and eigenspaces; Verify that a structure is a vector space by checking the axioms; that a subset is a subspace; and that a set of vectors is a basis;
- graph and analyze polar coordinates, parametric equations, and vectors and vector fields; and
- analyze algebraic and geometric properties of the dot product and of the cross product.
Transfer Pattern Description:
This Associate of Science degree pattern is designed to help students transfer to colleges and universities that offer a baccalaureate degree with a major in Mathematics. Beyond the General Education requirements and options, this pattern should be considered in light of the requirements of the selected transfer institution. Students should consult with a transfer coordinator or an advisor for information about specific requirements.
The required courses listed here assume that the student has a background that includes algebra, geometry, and trigonometry. Students who do not meet these requirements can take the required prerequisite courses at CCBC after placement testing.
