Mathematics is a unique blend of art and science and is the universal language that has brought together cultures, nations, and people of all origins working to advance humanity. Mathematical achievements destined to improve our lives could never exist without our diverse world of contributors across continents and across town. Students studying math join the family of mathematicians and math learners sharing ideas and seeking solutions that will continue to further all human endeavors.
The Math Department recognizes that a strong mathematical education is a powerful contributor to economic justice. We recognize that mathematical potential is independent of ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, political views and socio-economic background. We also recognize that systemic inequities exist, some of which act as barriers to attaining success in learning mathematics. Thus, we are committed to fostering a mathematical learning community that is welcoming, inclusive, engaging, and aimed at achieving academic success while focused on eliminating barriers as we find them. Our faculty is committed to continuous improvement in developing learning strategies and promoting diversity and inclusivity among our students, faculty and staff members. To this end, we affirm that the mental and physical well-being of our community, especially of our students, is of utmost importance.
The Mathematics Department offers a wide range of courses for its majors and for students pursuing other disciplines that include:
Grossmont College is committed to maximizing student success by ensuring students are assessed and placed in an appropriate starting Math class. With the passage of AB 705, assessment and placement criteria has changed to consider performance data as the primary measure to determine student readiness. AB 705 ensures students have access to transfer-level courses and are able to complete them within a one-year time frame.
