Mathematics

Mathematicians use symbolic languages to set up and analyze relationships among quantities and qualities of things, events, and places. Pure mathematicians develop the theories to further the science of mathematics. Possible careers include actuary, computer engineer, cryptographer, satellite communications expert, robotics programmer, statistician and teacher.

Students new to the Santa Monica College mathematics program who wish to enroll in a course must take the Math Assessment test before enrolling. A student who has successfully completed college level math courses (earned a grade of C or better) at another institution may be able to verify having met prerequisites by submitting an official transcript. Continuing students must complete prerequisite courses with a grade of “C” or better.
