MATHEMATICS DIVISION

Welcome to the Mathematics Department

of West Los Angeles College. We are located on the second floor of the new Math-Science Building, MSB, across the courtyard from the library.

 

We offer an extensive curriculum, ranging from arithmetic through linear algebra and differential equations.  For business majors, we offer Statistics, Finite Mathematics and Business Calculus.  For the prospective elementary school teachers, we offer Principles of Mathematics, the first course in a series of math requirements.

 

To best accommodate the needs of both our full-time and evening students, courses are scheduled throughout the day and evening from 8 AM to 10 PM Monday through Thursday.  We also offer Saturday classes, online and hybrid courses.

 

We have a full time teaching staff of ten instructors, and a part time teaching staff of 30 instructors.   Our teaching styles vary greatly, and we encourage the diversity to meet our students' learning needs.  Our top priority is the education of our students. We strive constantly for excellence and clarity in our teaching, helping students to build a solid academic foundation, whether for one's own personal enrichment, or to prepare one to move on to a higher-education institution. We encourage our students to appreciate the power, utility, and beauty of mathematics.

Throughout our department, we are here for you and your success. Welcome!
