Cuyamaca College Mathematics Department is dedicated to providing a sound mathematics curriculum coupled with consistent and effective teaching and learning methodologies which enable every student to: apply critical thinking skills in solving problems of everyday life; participate intelligently in civic affairs; compete in the high-performance workplace; develop connections among topics both within mathematics and between disciplines; and acquire an appreciation for the beauty and intrinsic order of mathematics.


The emphasis of our Mathematics program is to prepare students for transfer to a four-year institution or for career preparation. In order to provide the best program for our students and to meet the needs of our rapidly changing technological society, we believe it is important to continually evaluate and if necessary revise our curriculum and teaching methodologies. For example, our Math Pathways program enables students to complete a transferable math course within one semester. This expresses just part of our dedication to provide our students the best mathematics education possible at the community college level.
