Mathematics

Placement Standard

See Placement Tests Procedures .

Mathematics Division Policy on Calculators

It is the policy of the mathematics division to encourage the use of graphics-type calculators by all students. The use of a graphics-type calculator is required for all courses numbered MTH 1000  and above. It is impossible to specify a particular calculator for every course. However, the TI 84 is recommended for all students taking courses numbered MTH 1000  or higher. Consult with your instructor or the division chair before purchasing any other calculator.

College Prep Courses

These courses are designed to improve students’ chances for success in college-level courses. When college readiness is not indicated by placement test scores in basic skill areas (English, mathematics, reading), college prep courses provide students with the opportunity to strengthen requisite skills. College prep courses are noncredit, but have credit equivalency for calculation of tuition, fees, financial assistance, and athletic eligibility. 

Web-Hybrid Math Sections

Some math courses have sections that blend classroom instruction and online instruction. Students meet on campus once each week and complete the course instruction and activities online during the week. An additional fee is added to these web-hybrid sections.

Computer Assignments

Virtually all mathematics classes will have some, if not all, assignments that are to be completed online or using specified software. Many of these assignments can be done at home with Internet access or at a campus computer lab.

Textbooks

Many mathematics textbooks will be bundled with computer software and/or access codes for course work. It is recommended that these textbook bundles be purchased at the CSM College Store in order to avoid paying higher prices for separate purchases of textbooks and other required materials.

Music

R. Brown, Chair

Students develop their musical technique to college-level standards, expand their knowledge of music literature, and refine their performance skills through group and private instruction. Students participating in Chorale, Chamber Choir, Jazz Ensemble, Latin Ensemble, or Barbershop Harmony Chorus, develop skills in large group performance and music interpretation.

Group Instruction - Group instruction in piano, voice and guitar, is open to all students. Students in the associate of arts music degree program who declare piano, voice or guitar as their major instrument may not register for group instruction on that instrument. Students will learn the basic elements of music, fundamentals of performance, and technical development. There is a $75.00 course fee for group instruction courses in addition to tuition.

Private Instruction - Private lessons are available on all instruments and voice to students who have attained an acceptable level of music instruction. Students in the music performance concentration must register for private instruction during two semesters; those in the musical studies concentration may take private instruction as an elective. Students in other degree programs may register at the discretion of the instructor. Students will have 15 one-hour lessons to be scheduled at a convenient time for the student and instructor. There is a $250.00 instruction fee in addition to tuition. Students are encouraged to contact the coordinator of music for placement.

Instrumental and Vocal Ensembles - All students in the associate of arts music degree program must register each semester for a vocal or instrumental ensemble appropriate for their performance area. Other students taking private or group instruction are encouraged to participate in one of the college’s ensembles. Ensembles are open to all students and community members. Contact the coordinator of music or ensemble director for placement.
