Some people study mathematics for its own sake. They find algebra, calculus, geometry and logic interesting and they love a challenge. Others study it because they will work in a mathematics-related field, such as finance, statistics, physics, engineering, chemistry – the list goes on. Whether you are one of these people or not, any study of mathematics, great or small, will strengthen your reasoning skills.

At College of DuPage, we serve all of these different types of people with their different goals. Whether the math courses you take at College of DuPage are transferred to a four-year college or university, are refresher courses that improve your basic skills, or used to prepare you for a new job, you can be confident that you will receive a high-quality education from a strong faculty interested in you successfully learning math.

    COD has so much diversity, and it’s given me a new perspective on life. I’ve been able to learn a lot about myself, and I’ve discovered that I’m more adventurous than I thought I was. I’ve also learned it’s OK to say ‘no’ and put yourself first. I would tell others to get involved and don’t be afraid to talk to anyone. Everyone is willing and open, and it creates a better sense of community.

    "I was talking with a friend of mine who attends UIC, and he was surprised at the topics that we covered in my Calculus II class at COD that he never learned until later classes. The education provided at COD is first-rate and even better in some areas when compared to big universities. I'm getting a quality yet affordable education at College of DuPage."
