The study of Mathematics develops quantitative reasoning skills useful in everyday life as well as in many careers. At Delta College, we offer Mathematics courses ranging from Review of Arithmetic through Multivariable Calculus. Courses such as Finite Math and Introduction to Probability and Statistics are useful in non-STEM fields. More advanced courses, including the Calculus sequence, Differential Equations, and Linear Algebra, are essential if you plan on pursuing a career in STEM fields.

Satisfying Your Math GE Requirements: Which Course Do I Take?
Whether you plan to transfer, earn a degree or earn a certificate, you will need to satisfy a basic math requirement. You may also have additional math courses to take depending on your major and future plans. We have course sequences and pathways to help guide you through Math courses, but which you take will depend largely on two factors:
The first math class you take will depend on your current math level as determined by the Assessment Placement test you take during enrollment to Delta. Depending on your score, you may be able to skip some courses. Visit the Assessment Center to learn more about the placement test.
If you are planning to major in Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics (STEM), you will need to complete more advanced levels of math. For non-STEM majors, a lower level of math will be required.
Our sequence and Pathway to Intermediate Algebra is meant to be a guide to help you weigh these two factors and begin planning your courses. But, we also recommend meeting with a counselor to further discuss the Math courses that fit your educational goal(s).
