JUST-IN-TIME SUPPORT COURSES
Four two-unit just-in-time support courses have been established to support students in completing a transfer-level mathematics course within the first year of enrollment at San Jose City College.
Transfer-level math courses designed for students who plan to major in business, education, or liberal arts include the following:
Transfer Program (Science, Technology, Engineering, or Mathematics majors)
This program is designed for students who need advanced mathematics courses and includes the following courses:
Multivariable Calculus is offered each fall semester at Leland High School, and Differential Equations is offered each spring semester at Leland High School. Graphing calculators are required for all listed courses. Some courses may also incorporate the Maple mathematical software package.

Associate Degrees for Transfer
In addition to AA and AS degrees, Associate Degrees for Transfer (AA-T and AS-T) are offered for students who intend to complete a bachelor's degree in a similar major at a California State University. For details regarding the Associate in Science in Mathematics for Transfer (AS-T) degree, visit this webpage.
Mathematics Program Student Learning Outcomes
amatyc mathematics contest
San Jose City College students participate in a national mathematics contest sponsored by the American Mathematics Association of Two-Year Colleges (AMATYC).
Normally, one round of this contest is given in the fall, and one round is given in the spring for a given academic year.
Each round consists of 20 problems to be solved within one hour with a graphing calculator's aid.
Problems may include material up to and including pre-calculus mathematics, including some probability and logic problems. The national winner receives a $3,000 scholarship.
Any San Jose City College student may participate. The San Jose City College team score for a given round consists of the five highest individual student scores for that round, among participating SJCC students who have not yet attained a two-year or higher college degree.
This contest was canceled for 2020-2021, given that most two-year colleges are in remote operation.
Online and Live Interactive Tutoring via Zoom
The San Jose City College Learning Resource Center offers free online and live interactive tutoring via Zoom for all SJCC students in most academic subjects offered by SJCC. For more details, visit this webpage.
Supplemental Instruction (SI)
Student tutors and faculty are offering group tutoring via Zoom for specific sections of mathematics courses. For more information, visit this webpage.
Peer-Led Team Learning (PLTL)
Student tutors and faculty offer group tutoring via Zoom in math, biology, chemistry, physics, and ethnic studies. Students who become peer leaders earn a modest stipend and are offered opportunities to participate in local and national conferences, internships, and more. To view the current semester schedule of PLTL workshops, visit this webpage.
