Mathematics

Students in classMathematics is a universal science and a key component of a liberal arts education. It is a critical tool for technological advancement and practical problem-solving in a complex natural and social world. The major provides training in logic and critical thinking, and helps students gain mastery level skills in calculus, algebra, geometry, statistics, and computer programming.

At Independence Community College the Associate of Science Degree in Mathematics gives students a firm foundation in mathematics along with the general education courses that will be required for continuing their education.  Upper level courses and electives for the Math major include Introduction to Analytic Processes, Analytic Geometry & Calculus, Elementary Statistics, and Plane Trigonometry.

This two-year Degree in Mathematics is designed to serve as an entryway to degree programs at 4-year colleges and universities where graduates are prepared for a wide range of careers including teaching, computer science, engineering, finance, actuarial science, business, investments, behavioral sciences, and research.
