Why Study Mathematics?

Mathematics reveals hidden patterns that help us understand the world around us.

Now much more than arithmetic and geometry, mathematics today is a diverse discipline that deals with data, measurements, and observations from science; with inference, deduction, and proof; and with mathematical models of natural phenomena, of human behavior, and social systems.

Getting Started

Always check course prerequisites when planning your schedule of classes. To view course prerequisites, check the listings in the department's course catalog. Plan well in advance to submit your prerequisite clearance request form if you think you've already met the prerequisite requirement through another college.

To clear your prerequisites, you may send your completed form with unofficial transcripts to the Admissions Office Evaluations Unit at daclearprereq@deanza.edu or to the Physical Sciences, Mathematics and Engineering Division at dapsme@deanza.edu.
