The Mathematics Division helps students build strong skills in mathematical communication,
problem-solving, and mathematical reasoning. This solid foundation enables students
to transfer to other institutions of higher education, pursue advanced studies in
math or related disciplines, and be prepared with occupational and technical skills
to meet the needs of business and industry.
Students entering FTCC may need or desire a review of mathematical concepts usually
taught in high school before beginning the math courses required for their programs
of study. The Pre-Curriculum Mathematics Program, often called Developmental Math,
offers pre-college level math courses designed to prepare students for college-level
mathematics courses. The goal of the Pre-Curriculum Mathematics Program is to aid
students in refreshing their math skills as quickly and efficiently as possible to
ensure success in curriculum-level math courses without significantly slowing the
student's progress through his or her chosen program. For more information about the
Pre-Curriculum Mathematics Program, please visit the Developmental Math page.
College Transfer Mathematics:
Virtually all curriculum programs at FTCC require at least one 100-level or higher mathematics course. To accommodate these various programs, the Mathematics Division offers a flexible mathematics curriculum including courses for terminal degree programs (not intended to lead to a Bachelor's Degree); college transfer programs leading toward non-math intensive degrees, as in the social sciences or business; and transfer programs leading toward math-intensive degrees, such as in science or engineering. The Curriculum Mathematics Program, often known as College Transfer Math, offers courses in both traditional and non-traditional (online) formats to meet the demands of FTCC's diverse student body.
