Mathematics AS-T

The Associate in Science in Mathematics for Transfer (AS-T) allows for students to begin preparation for careers in quantitative professions such as actuarial science, education, computer programming, systems analysis and operations research analysis. In addition, a strong background in mathematics facilitates employment in fields such as engineering, economics, finance and genetics.

Program Student Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of the program, students will be able to:

  • produce, analyze and manipulate graphs of a function.
  • correctly choose and apply a theorem or procedure to produce a result.
  • solve an equation or a system of linear equations.
