Mathematics

Algebra, geometry, trigonometry, calculus, statistics — math is a universal language. It makes sense that you should be as confident as possible using it.


Mathematics students in a classroom at Johnson County Community College work in small groups to solve complex algebraic equations on paper and with calculators.

What will I learn?

Math is essential for careers in science, technology and engineering, but all careers require a certain level of proficiency. So while you’ll learn theorems and laws and rules, more importantly you’ll develop analytical skills and sharpen your problem-solving ability.

Using math, you can learn how to:

  • Project a business’s profit and loss potential
  • Encrypt or decrypt software
  • Design a building for structural safety or make interior design pleasing to the eye 

And day to day, you’ll use math to manage your personal budget, understand your taxes, protect your investments and calculate your own earnings potential.

Nearly all of JCCC’s associate degree and credentialing programs require some level of math proficiency. Choose from classes that best meet your skill level and career requirements, including:
