VVC campus advisory: Be safe during holidays

Math required for college transfer

engineering,  calculus is the universal language. Calculus is the mathematics of change," said Professor Louis Shahin.
     At the chalk board, Shahin demonstrated solving the volume in a corner using a multiple integral and the variables x,y,z.  He put a second on the board with the information needed to solve for the center of mass (center of gravity) of the same shape with uniform density.
     He mentioned that the next chapter would introduce Stoke's Theorem, which would simplify calculation.
     Suzi Bailey plans to transfer to U.C. Davis, where she hopes to major in veterinary medicine. The school only requires a year of calculus, but she said she wanted the five units. She is canvassing to locate a veterinarian who will allow her to do an internship so she can fulfill U.C. Davis' requirement of work in the field.
     For Brian Oliver, the 15 units of calculus is mandatory. He plans to transfer to U.C. Riverside, where he will study physics. He hopes to become a research physicist. "Physics is fun," he said.
     Clayton Garner is finishing up his stay at Victor Valley College and plans to transfer to  Brigham Young  University in Provo, Utah. "Their engineering school is well thought of," said Garner. "The lifestyle there would be more compatible." He wants to study chemical engineering and work as a research chemist.
