SJSU ARTICULATION AGREEMENT
Lower Division Requirements
Fall 2013 - Spring 2014

BA - Mathematics

Preparation for Teaching

San José State University -to- Diablo Valley College

Community College students should meet with a counselor as soon as possible to determine the equivalent courses offered at that institution. Students should complete as many as possible of the lower division requirements listed below, prior to transfer.

Lower Division Course Requirements

Community College Course Equivalents

Note: This major accepts the AS-T in Mathematics (SB 1440 degree) for transfer. We recommend transfers complete the following articulated courses when course choices for the AS-T in Mathematics are available. We strongly encourage students to take courses which clear the American Institution requirement and 2nd semester/quarter of English composition as part of their CSU GE or IGETC requirements for the AS-T degree (doing so will increase greater choice in the 60 units of SJSU course work to be taken).

Preparation for the Major:

PHYS 050 General Physics/MechanicsPHYS 130 Physics for Engineers and Scientists A: Mechanics & Wave Motion
   OR
ENGIN 256 Dynamics
PHYS 051 General Physics/Electricity and MagnetismPHYS 230 Physics for Engineers and Scientists B: Heat & Electro-Magnetism
   OR
PHYS 052 General Physics/Waves, Light, HeatPHYS 231 Physics for Engineers and Scientists C: Optics and Modern Physics

One course from the following:

MATH 050 Scientific Computing INo Current Equivalent
   OR
CS 046A Introduction to ProgrammingComSc 255 Programming with Java
   OR
CS 049C Programming in CComSc 165 Advanced Programming with C and C++
   OR
CS 049J Programming in JavaNo Current Equivalent

Lower Division Requirements of the Major:

MATH 030 Calculus IMath 192 Analytical Geometry & Calculus I
   OR
MATH 030P Calculus I with PrecalculusNo Current Equivalent
MATH 031 Calculus IIMath 193 Analytical Geometry & Calculus II
MATH 032 Calculus IIIMath 292 Analytical Geometry & Calculus III
MATH 042 Discrete MathematicsMath 195 Discrete Mathematics

Additional Major Requirements:

MATH 129A Linear Algebra IMATH 194 Linear Algebra
CONTENT CREDIT ONLY
MATH 133A Ordinary Differential EquationsMath 294 Differential Equations
CONTENT CREDIT ONLY
Note: Community college math courses articulated with SJSU's MATH 129A or MATH 133A will meet course content requirements for the major but will not receive upper division credit.

All students must satisfy the following prerequisite (or equivalent) prior to registering for the WST and 100W courses at SJSU {Academic Senate policy S05-8}.

Once the following course requirement is completed (earning a grade of C or better), students should contact http://testing.sjsu.edu to register for the WST exam at SJSU. Passing the WST prior to your first semester at SJSU will prevent delays in registering for upper division courses:
ENGL 001B Composition 2
A "C" or better is required in English 1B (a "C-" is not acceptable).
ENGL 123 Critical Thinking: Composition & Literature
   OR
ENGL 126 Critical Thinking: The Shaping of Meaning in Language
or
2nd English Composition Equivalent Transfer CourseCOMM 121 Persuasion & Critical Thinking
   OR
HIST 122 Critical Reasoning in History
   OR
PHILO 130 Critical Thinking: Reasoning in Everyday Life
   OR
PSYCH 145 Critical Thinking in Psychology
   OR
SOCIO 122 Critical Thinking About Social & Cultural Issues
A course articulated to SJSU's English 1B is recommended, however any course approved for the IGETC second semester composition area would be accepted to meet this requirement (a grade of "C" or better is required).


IMPORTANT TRANSFER INFORMATION:

Prior to transferring to San José State University all transfers must earn at least 60 transferable semester units (90 quarter). Within those 60 semester/90 quarter units students are strongly encouraged to complete the following:

1. General Education Requirements:
Complete all the CSU GE Breadth requirements at the community college (39 semester units/58 quarter units). The approved courses for each area can be found at www.ASSIST.org under the link "CSU GE-Breadth Certification Courses" for your college. Many of these courses can be double counted to meet the major requirements shown above, so choose your courses wisely. Please see your college counselor/advisor to review your general education in order to receive FULL OR PARTIAL CERTIFICATION PRIOR TO TRANSFER to San José State University.

2. Second Semester English Composition:
Complete the second semester English composition course (or equivalent) as it is a prerequisite to registering for the WST and 100W courses at SJSU. Students must earn a grade of "C" or better in this course (a "C-" is not acceptable). Approved courses can be found above within the lower division major requirements. Be sure to select this course as part of your CSU GE-Breadth 39 semester unit requirements. Once this course is complete, students are encouraged to take the WST exam at SJSU to avoid delays in enrollment for other SJSU required courses. To register for the WST contact our Testing office at testing.sjsu.edu.

3. American Institutions Requirement (US 1, US 2, and US 3 must be completed):
This requirement is normally 2 courses and can be taken as part of your CSU GE-Breadth 39 semester unit requirements (GE Area D and sometimes Area C). The approved courses can be found at www.ASSIST.org under the link "CSU US History, Constitution, and American Ideals Courses" for your college.

4. Physical Education Requirement:
Two courses are required and must include at least two different activities. Completion of these courses will clear the graduation requirement at SJSU.

5. Lower Division Major Course Requirements:
Complete as many of the lower division courses required for the major as possible. Many of these courses may be double counted as part of the CSU GE-Breadth 39 semester unit requirements. These requirements are shown above.
