Mathematics MATE.S.AS

Associate of Science - 60 - 61 Credit Hours

Division: Science, Mathematics and Engineering
Department: Mathematics
Effective as of Fall 2018

Through our program, you will learn how to use mathematics to solve problems that arise both in everyday life and in the careers of actuaries, operations researchers, statisticians, economists, and many others. Moreover, you will get the opportunity to hone the skills that mathematicians hold most dear: the ability to construct arguments that are rigorous and complete; the ability to discern patterns; and the ability to re-examine the assumptions that underlie any system of scientific or logical thought, and to determine what the implications of new assumptions might be.

What is the program about?

The curriculum of the Associate of Science in Mathematics degree is designed to correspond to both the math and general education courses that a student would take in the first two years of pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in math at a four-year institution. Coursework can be customized to fit interests in Statistics/Actuarial Science, Secondary Math Education, or Pure/Applied Mathematics. Students will get a solid grounding in the mathematics that is applied in the physical science and engineering disciplines, and an introduction to more theoretical mathematics. As part of this degree program, students must complete the requirements of the Ohio Transfer Module in order to graduate.

Program Outcomes

  • Effectively communicate mathematical concepts using correct terminology and notation.
  • Effectively construct a mathematical proof.
  • Demonstrate critical thinking and problem solving by using calculus to solve application problems.
