New BadgeThe Course Numbers for Some of Our Classes Have Changed

Effective Fall Semester 2017, the course numbers for MATH 150AF, 150BF, 250AF, 250BF, and 250CF, have been changed to MATH 151 F, 152 F, 251 F, 252 F, and 253 F, respectively. The content of each course has not been changed—just the course number. Visit our course list for a detailed description of each course.

New BadgeMATH 255 F and MATH 260 F - New Offerings at Fullerton College

The Mathematics department is pleased to announce two new courses that will be offered to transferring STEM students: MATH 255 F, Introduction to Linear Algebra and MATH 260 F, Ordinary Differential Equations. These classes are alternatives to MATH 252 F and/or MATH 253 F for students who either don't need both Linear Algebra and Differential Equations or for students looking for a more thorough and focused course in each of these topics to help them better prepare for upper-division coursework. Most colleges and universities offer Linear Algebra and Differential Equations in separate, dedicated courses, and now Fullerton College has courses that are more in line with this consensus.
