The Transfer Math Sequence you choose will depend on your major and your transfer
destination. See a counselor for more information.
Multiple measures, including high school transcripts, are now being used to help determine
proper placement of students into Mathematics courses. The Math Placement Test is
recommended but not required of all entering freshmen to assist with placement. Students
transferring to College of San Mateo with credit in college Mathematics can use their
transcripts to assist with placement, bypassing the need for placement testing.
Prerequisites are listed in the descriptions of Mathematics courses in the catalog
and the web schedule. Unless otherwise indicated, a grade of C or higher is required
for all prerequisite courses. Prerequisites may be met by showing proof of satisfactory
completion of an equivalent course at a post-secondary institution.
Minimum Grade for Prerequisites
Unless otherwise indicated, a grade of C or higher is required for all prerequisite
First half of MATH 120, a comprehensive review of elementary algebra with certain
topics studied in greater depth. Extension of fundamental algebraic
concepts and operations, problem solving and applications, linear, quadratic, rational
and radical equations, equations in two variables, graphs,
systems of equations, complex numbers, exponential and logarithmic functions, sequences
and series. MATH 122 and 123 together are equal
to MATH 120.
Letter Grade Only
Lecture hours/semester: 48-54
