SJSU ARTICULATION AGREEMENT

Lower Division Requirements

Fall 2014 - Spring 2015

## 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 | |||||||||||||||||||||||||

## STAR Act (SB 1440): | ||||||||||||||||||||||||||

The Mathematics department accepts the AS-T in Mathematics (SB 1440 degree) for transfer into this major. 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). | ||||||||||||||||||||||||||

A grade of "C-" or better is required for courses being used to meet any requirement in this major, including courses in preparation for the major. | ||||||||||||||||||||||||||

## Preparation for the Major: | ||||||||||||||||||||||||||

PHYS 050 General Physics/Mechanics | PHYS 4A General Physics: CalculusOR PHYS 5A General Physics (Calculus)AND PHYS 5B General Physics (Calculus) | |||||||||||||||||||||||||

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

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

PHYS 052 General Physics/Waves, Light, Heat | PHYS 4C 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 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 (*) | |||||||||||||||||||||||||

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 MathematicsOR 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. | ||||||||||||||||||||||||||

## WST Prerequisite: | ||||||||||||||||||||||||||

Beginning Fall 2014 the prerequisite for the WST is the completion of the CSU GE A3 with a grade of C or better. All students are strongly encouraged to complete a second English composition course as part of their lower division GE prior to transferring to SJSU (either to meet CSU GE Area A3 or C2). In doing this students will be more prepared to pass the WST and 100W course at SJSU. | ||||||||||||||||||||||||||

Once the following recommended course has been completed with a grade of C or better, students should contact our testing office: 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 registration for upper division courses): | ||||||||||||||||||||||||||

2nd English Composition/Critical Thinking Equivalent Transfer Courseany course approve for the IGETC Critical Thinking/Second semester English composition 1B area is highly recommended | ENGL 1B Composition, Critical Reading & ThinkingOR ENGL 1BH Honors Composition, Critical Reading & ThinkingOR ENGL 1C Advanced CompositionOR ENGL 1CH Honors Advanced CompositionOR PHIL 1 Critical Thinking | |||||||||||||||||||||||||

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

ENGL 001B Composition 2 | ENGL 1B Composition, Critical Reading & ThinkingOR ENGL 1BH Honors Composition, Critical Reading & Thinking | |||||||||||||||||||||||||

## 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 Jose State University all transfers must earn at least 60 transferable semester units (90 quarter), including the CSU four basic skill courses required for CSU admission eligibility. Within those 60 semester/90 quarter units students are strongly encouraged to complete the following:

**1. Lower Division Major Course Requirements (especially for STEM Majors):**

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.

**2. 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 Jose State University.

**3. Second Semester English Composition highly recommended:**

Complete the second semester English composition course (or equivalent) with a grade of "C" or better prior to registering for the WST and 100W course at SJSU. 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.

**4. 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.
