SJSU ARTICULATION AGREEMENT

Lower Division Requirements

Fall 2013 - Spring 2014

## BA - Mathematics

#### San José State University -to- Foothill 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/Mechanics | Phys 4A General Physics: Calculus OR PHYS 5A General Physics (Calculus) AND PHYS 5B General Physics (Calculus) AND PHYS 5C General Physics (Calculus) | |||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

PHYS 051 General Physics/Electricity and Magnetism | Phys 4B General Physics: Calculus OR PHYS 5A General Physics (Calculus) AND PHYS 5B General Physics (Calculus) AND PHYS 5C General Physics (Calculus) | |||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

OR | ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

PHYS 052 General Physics/Waves, Light, Heat | Phys 4C General Physics: Calculus AND Phys 4D General Physics: Calculus | |||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

## One course from the following: | ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

MATH 050 Scientific Computing I | No Current Equivalent | |||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

OR | ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

CS 046A Introduction to Programming | CS 1B Intermediate Software Design in JAVA (*) OR CS 1A Object-Oriented Programming Methodologies in JAVA (*) AND CS 1B Intermediate Software Design in JAVA (*) | |||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

OR | ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

CS 049C Programming in C | No Current Equivalent | |||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

OR | ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

CS 049J Programming in Java | No Current Equivalent | |||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

## Lower Division Requirements of the Major: | ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

MATH 030 Calculus I | Math 1A Calculus (*) AND Math 1B Calculus (*) | |||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

OR | ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

MATH 030P Calculus I with Precalculus | No Current Equivalent | |||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

MATH 031 Calculus II | Math 1B Calculus (*) AND Math 1C Calculus (*) | |||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

MATH 032 Calculus III | Math 1C Calculus (*) AND Math 1D Calculus (*) | |||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

MATH 042 Discrete Mathematics | Math 22 Discrete Mathematics OR CS 18 Discrete Mathematics | |||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

## Additional Major Requirements: | ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

MATH 129A Linear Algebra I | Math 2B Linear Algebra (*) CONTENT CREDIT ONLY | |||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

Note: Community college math courses articulated with SJSU's MATH 129A 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 1B Composition, Critical Reading & Thinking OR Engl 1BH Honors Composition, Critical Reading & Thinking | |||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

or | ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

2nd English Composition Equivalent Transfer Course | ENGL 1C Advanced Composition OR ENGL 1CH Honors Advanced Composition OR PHIL 1 Critical Thinking | |||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

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). | ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

## LDTP Approved Courses (*) | ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

The following Foothill College courses are approved for the following LDTP course descriptors shown on the right. | ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

| ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

LDTP courses are acceptable "in lieu of" each other. | ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

LDTP courses are not necessarily "equivalent" or "identical" in content. |

### 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.
