The Victor Valley College Mathematics Department offers a variety of courses to meet the needs of our diverse student population. It is a vital and growing program, providing reasoning skills to help students function in a wide range of sciences: social, biological, physical, behavioral, and management. Mathematics is necessary for understanding and expressing ideas in science, engineering, and human affairs. Mathematics is integrally related to computer science and statistics, which have proven invaluable to advancing research and modern industrial technology. The Mathematics curriculum academically prepares the student to transfer to a 4-year university to complete a Baccalaureate degree; it is also an integral part of many certificates and degrees offered at VVC. In addition, we offer a Math AS-T degree for students who wish to major in mathematics.
The Mathematics Department is also a key component that integrates relevant knowledge and addresses questions across a wide range of basic mathematics, applied mathematics, statistics, and other disciplines. Our students gain knowledge and skills to construct, analyze, and interpret mathematical models for a variety of real-life problems, drawing on a wide range of mathematical tools and concepts.
In September, 2012, the Math Department opened the Math Success Center. It is located in the Adademic Commons (building 42). Open Mon-Fri from 9 am - 5 pm, it is a place to study and do your homework, as well as a place to get math tutoring. Click HERE for more information.
