What Can I Do With Mathematics?
Mathematics is for Every Discipline
An anonymous source said, “Knowledge of Mathematics makes you more versatile, valuable
and mentally mature.”
Any attempt to define mathematics is destined to miss the grand scope of the discipline, but in short, mathematics is the logical study of quantities, structures and space from both an abstract perspective as well as an applied context.
In general, students pursuing every degree at Columbia Basin College (CBC) will find mathematics courses to satisfy their educational goals.
- Students interested in pursuing a science and mathematics rich discipline like engineering,
or pure science disciplines like physics and chemistry, will follow the rigorous mathematics
coursework needed through calculus, linear algebra and differential equations.
- Students interested in less mathematically intensive disciplines like biology or environmental
science (or even business and economics) will need courses of precalculus, statistics
and perhaps some calculus.
- Students seeking a liberal arts degree will benefit from math in society and/or statistics,
while those pursing a technically field like machining or welding will take algebra
