Mathematics Pathway, A.S.

Return to: Mathematics   

Mathematics is the science and study of numbers, shapes and spaces and how they apply to the universe in which we live. Mathematics examines operations, interrelations, combinations, generalizations, abstractions, configurations, structure, measurement and transformations.

Mathematicians have the opportunity to make a lasting contribution to society by helping to solve problems that affect our daily lives. Weather forecasters, software programmers and ecologists apply mathematical principles every day in very different ways.

Perimeter College prepares students to transfer to a four-year college and offers math clubs and initiatives such as STEM or MESA to help increase academic performance. Students can take advantage of opportunities for tutoring, scholarships and grants, There also are opportunities to compete in national tests sponsored by the American Mathematical Association.
