Pathway Information   |

Math Pathway Information - Effective Fall 2022

Standard coursework depends upon the course of study, and is formalized into the following math pathways.

Overview:

  • STEM Pathway: For students who are majoring in or seeking to transfer in a STEM-related (math-intensive) discipline. This pathway provides a rigorous sequence that includes extended STEM applications to prepare students for transfer to a CSU or UC.
  • Non-STEM (Liberal Arts & CTE) Pathway: For students who do not require STEM coursework.  This pathway satisfies the institutional requirement for an Associate Degree and provides students with the flexibility of choosing a mathematical literacy course that best suits the requirements of their degree, certificate, or program for transfer with coursework that is CSU and/or UC transferable.
  • Students should meet with a counselor to develop a plan that will meet the requirements of their educational goals.  

Coursework in the pathways is as follows:

STEM Pathway

  • The entry point for a student pursuing this pathway will be determined by placement or prerequisite. MTH 121 Trigonometry is the base course for all students in this pathway For some students, a co-requisite support course may be required.
  • The standard STEM pathway, in order taken, includes: MTH 121 Trigonometry; MTH 200 Precalculus; MTH 210 Calculus 1; and MTH 211 Calculus 2, after which MTH 212 Calculus 3 and MTH 214 Linear Algebra can be taken in any order.  The sequence is completed with MTH 215 Differential Equations.

Non-STEM (Liberal Arts & CTE) Pathway

  • This pathway offers 3 courses in quantitative reasoning that are designed to meet the requirements for a variety of majors that do not require an extensive STEM background.
  • Those who are seeking an Associate degree may find that MTH 170 Mathematics in Native American Cultures will meet their degree (math and cultural competency) requirement. CSU transfer is pending. This course emphasizes collaborative work and critical thinking in topics such as geometry, game probability, patterns, and design; it is not taught in a traditional lecture format. MTH 170 is an open entry course that may require co-requisites for some students.
  • Those who are seeking an Associate degree and plan to transfer to a CSU may find that MTH 178 Applied Math will meet their degree and transfer requirements.  This course offers an overview of mathematical topics that focuses on useful applications and mathematical reasoning in society.  MTH 178 is an open entry course that may require co-requisite for some students.
  • Those who are seeking an Associate degree and plan to transfer to a UC or CSU and/or are in a major that requires a course in statistics should take MTH 220 Statistics.  For some students, co-requisites may be required. 
  • Additionally, students seeking a Business Administration Associate Degree for Transfer will take MTH 230 Business Calculus.  If the student will also need MTH 220 Statistics for their program, it is suggested that this course is taken before MTH 230 Business Calculus.

Chatnaree Upton was born and raised in Bangkok, Thailand. She graduated from Chulalongkorn University with a Bachelor of Science majoring in Physics and Education. While she was an undergrad student, she worked as a physics and math private tutor. It has been her passion to teach and to help others understand and have that "aha" moment. After getting her degree, she got an opportunity to become a flight attendant for Japan Airlines. Although it was not what she was in school for, she could not pass the opportunity to travel the world and meet people from different cultures. "It was a great experience that had sharpened my personal perspective of life". After four years, she moved to the United States. She became a part-time physics and astronomy instructor at Mendocino College while working at Ukiah High School as the physics/mathematics/MESA teacher and STEM club advisor. She later earned a Master of Science in Mathematics from Emporia State University. She feels fortunate to have learned a wide range of topics in STEM-related fields and has had opportunities in participating in many STEM competitions over the years. Integrating mathematics and science is the passion that she wishes to continue sharing with her students.

 

In addition to these full-time math instructors, we have several excellent adjunct (part-time) instructors.
