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.
STUDENTS: If you need to complete a Prerequisite Petition Form, a Section Transfer Form, or if you need to Meet the Dean or receive your AB 705 math placement clearances, please make your request by emailing the division office at email@example.com.
Repeat petitions are now completed with the Admissions & Records Office. Go to Admissions & Records or you may email them at firstname.lastname@example.org to check on the status of an already-submitted repeat petition.
