The Division of Mathematical Sciences is a unit of the Academic Affairs area, and is composed of three departments: the Department of Mathematics, the Department of Computer Science, and the Department of Engineering. We offer instruction in these courses supporting social science and liberal arts majors, education majors (future teachers), and STEM majors.
Mathematics courses range from liberal arts mathematics and statistics to differential equations and linear algebra. Many mathematics courses provide students the opportunity to use popular technology including graphing calculators, GeoGebra and Mathematica, WebAssign, MyMathLab, and online statistical software. Computer science courses offer students experience working with C++, Java, Python, assembly language, and MATLAB just to name a few. Students finishing these courses are prepared to transfer into to four-year computer science programs. Engineering courses offer students an introduction to engineering fields. The Department of Engineering also offers an additional statics course, and the debut of a circuits course with circuits lab.
The Division of Mathematical Sciences is the hub for three support services. The Math Study Center (located in MBAH 119) provides one-to-one tuoring on a drop-in basis remotely and in person. The Math Study Center also provides embedding tutors for most of our mathematics courses. Supplemental Instruction offers coaches that provide additional group study practices to students in mathematics courses. The Mathematics, Engineering, Science Achievement program (or MESA) is a mentoring program involving faculty, upper division students, and science/health professionalshelp to help underserved and underrepresented students achieve success in math- and science-based degrees.
Complete the English/Math Placement survey under your MyECC account. After logging into MyECC, look for this survey at the bottom:
Complete this survey. Then, set an appointment with a counselor to understand what transfer-level mathematics course(s) you are eligible for and should take for your major.
If you only want to pursue your associate's degree, complete the survey and enroll in MATH 80: Intermediate Algebra.

Complete the General Petition Form from the Admissions & Records (A&R) Office. Prerequisite clearances are processed through A&R and not through the division. After completing the form, you may email them at firstname.lastname@example.org to check on the status of it.
Complete the Repeat Petition Form from the Admissions & Records (A&R) Office. Repeat petitions are processed through A&R and not through the division. After completing the form, you may email them at email@example.com to check on the status of it.
Section transfers are for students who need to switch to a different section due an extenuating situation or circumstance. It is the student's responsibility to get permission from the instructor that he or she wants to transfer into. Once this has been established, complete the Section Transfer Form.
