ASSOCIATEOFSCIENCE
This is a two-year transferableprogram leading to an
associateof sciencewith an emphasis inmathematics.
This programwill provide studentswith thenecessary
background in calculus anddifferential equations
needed for abachelor’s degree inmathematics andwill
alsoprovide the computer scienceneeded for abachelor
of sciencedegree atUNR.All courses recommended
will partially satisfy thedegree requirements for anyof
thebachelor’s degreeoptions offeredby themathematics
department at theUniversityofNevada, Reno.
EMPHASISOUTCOMES
Students completing the emphasiswill:
• Select andapply the appropriate algorithmormethodology to solve
mathematical problems.
• Usedeductive reasoning to constructmathematical proofs.
• Communicatemathematical information formally through
appropriatenotation, terminology, andgraphical representation
aswell as communicatemathematical ideas informallyusing
everyday language.
