Illuminate the root of all things beautiful and mysterious

We are constantly making mathematical decisions. Can we afford a new car? Yes, because it’s in the budget. How long has the universe been around? Well, that takes a bit more time to calculate. But you can do it.

Math—especially advanced math—makes sense of complex, real-world problems like inflation. It is the foundation of everything from physics to artificial intelligence. Once you identify what university you want to transfer to, save money by completing your Associate in Science degree with courses that meet the college's requirements. Then, get ready to choose a career path!
