Associate of Science (A.S.) in Science
Transfer Pattern - Mathematics

Semester Sequence

This is a suggested full-time schedule for a student who has completed any developmental course work and has no transfer credits. Refer to the College catalog for specific requirements in selecting General Education courses.

Spring Semester Year 1

Fall Semester Year 2

Spring Semester Year 2


General Education - 30 Credits

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 & Humanities 3 Credits.
  • Social and Behavioral Sciences 6 Credits.

Program Requirements and Electives - 30 Credits

Program Electives:

Elective courses should be selected to meet transfer institution requirements.

Total Credits Required for Degree: 60 min.*

*Credit students who are new to college (no successfully completed college coursework at other institutions) are required to take ACDV 101  in the first semester at CCBC. This is a 1-credit class, and it does not count towards the number of credits required for a degree or certificate. Students are required to provide an official transcript(s) to document successful completion of college coursework at another institution(s) for this requirement to be waived.


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.

Transfer Pattern Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this degree, 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.
