The mission of the Mathematics Department is to provide quality education in various areas of mathematics to support certificate and degree programs. The department offers courses that promote critical thinking and logical reasoning while developing and strengthening problem solving skills. The Math Department is committed to prepare all students who lack basic math skills by offering developmental courses in arithmetic and introductory algebra. In addition, the department also offers courses in vocational technical math, college algebra and trigonometry, statistics and calculus to ensure that ASCC students acquire the necessary mathematical foundation for entry into the work force or for transferring to four-year institutions.
