Mathematics Roadmap



Mathematics 3-year roadmap for transfer/A.S.


This Roadmap is provided as a SAMPLE GUIDE showing what a full-time student's schedule MAY look like. There is no guarantee that all classes will be offered each semester or that classes will have space available. You must meet all prerequisite requirements prior to registering for a class.


What was the last Math class that you completed with a passing grade?

Follow this roadmap to transfer to a four-year university in a Mathematics major. This is a sample schedule for planning your classes, but plans should be individualized for specific majors and universities.


Students may also complete the A.S. degree in Mathematics by completing this plan. Consult with a Los Medanos Counselor for help in planning your schedule. Visit the Mathematics website for more information and descriptions of math classes and prerequisites.

Please check with your LMC Counselor and www.assist.org to modify the plan for you.


*Take these classes only if you have not completed classes in Chemistry, Computer Science, or Physics in high school, or did not test into English-100, or have not completed prerequisites for MATH-050 Calculus. PHYS-015=Introduction to Physics. CHEM-006=Introduction to Chemistry. COMSC-040=Introduction to Computers.


*MATH-050 has a prerequisite of Precalculus and Geometry. Take Algebra 2, Geometry, and Precalculus only if you have not passed these classes or do not feel confident in your Math abilities. Challenge tests are available in the Math Lab.


**The Mathematics major at UC Berkeley requires English 230 and two or three semesters of a foreign language (if three years of a foreign language were not completed in high school), if IGETC will not be completed. Please check with your LMC Counselor and www.assist.org.


***Some universities require physics, chemistry, statistics, or programming/engineering classes for the Mathematics major, and some don't. Please check with your LMC Counselor and www.assist.org.


GE = CSU GE or IGETC classes selected from Arts & Humanities, Sciences, Social & Behavioral Sciences, or other areas as needed. Please consult with your LMC Counselor or a university representative.


This plan is for full-time students who can study 26-32+hrs. every week outside of class. For successful completion, this plan will require your commitment and excellent time management skills.


Planning for transfer is a complex process. Please consult with your LMC Counselor, professors in your major classes, and university representatives every semester.


These plans do not guarantee acceptance to a university – other factors such as strength of academic preparation and related experience are also important.
