Math serves as an integral part of general education by providing the basic foundation for logic and reasoning. Math concepts are needed for every career path, especially those in the health, science, business and computer fields. Math courses also provide essential terms and knowledge needed for everyday life such as balancing your checkbook, understanding the economy, getting a house or auto loan, following a recipe, calculating your taxes or determining your savings on a sale item.
A variety of Math courses are available for the fall semester such as those listed below:
