Calculus I (MATH& 151) requires the successful completion of both Trigonometry (MATH 103) and College Algebra (MATH 110/MATH 111), or recommending score on an approved placement test prior to registration. These prerequisite courses can be used to fulfill elective requirements within the Associate in Science (AS) degree program.
Or select math courses that have MATH& 152 as a prerequisite.
Must consult with faculty or advising to pick the correct sequences.
Check with chosen 4-year school.
Preferably a 3-term sequence; check with chosen 4-year school regarding course selection to better prepare for major.
These remaining credits/units may include prerequisites for major courses, additional major coursework, or specific general education or other university requirements as approved by the advisor. A maximum of five (5) General Elective (GE) credits/units will apply.
Program outcomes are overarching skills that are emphasized and reinforced throughout several courses in a specific program; they are measurable statements that define what students should know or be able to do by the end of a certificate or degree at Clark College. After successful completion of this program, students will be able to:
- Apply a method of scientific inquiry, valid to the natural sciences, to evaluate claims about the natural world. (GE)
- Articulate well-considered ideas and written claims to an academic audience, using effective rhetorical techniques, properly credited evidence, and a command of Standard English. (GE)
- Demonstrate progress toward healthier behaviors. (GE)
- Interpret the human experience, within appropriate global and historical contexts, through evaluation, analysis, creation, or performance. (GE)
- Obtain, evaluate, and ethically use information. (GE)
- Analyze patterns of power, privilege, and inequity in the United States. (GE)
- Evaluate, analyze, and explain events, behaviors, and institutions using perspectives and methods in the Social Sciences. (GE)
- Apply communication theory to demonstrate effective oral communication skills.(GE)
- Demonstrate and clearly explain an effective strategy to solve a quantitative problem. (GE)
- Apply scientific methodologies to develop and answer questions about the natural world.
- Demonstrate understanding of the derivative as an instantaneous rate of change and the definite integral as a limit of a sum.
- Analyze and solve multi-step problems using techniques through single-variable calculus.
- Acquire scientific information from appropriate sources to analyze issues, claims or situations.
