The LA Valley College Mathematics Department is located in Math Science 104. The department offers courses ranging from Arithmetic to Differential Equations. The primary goal of the department is to ensure that every student in each math class has the maximum opportunity for success. Although we cannot guarantee this success, it has been our experience that students have a greater likelihood of improved class performance when they employ some simple techniques which are outlined in the Math Department Brochure. We highly recommend that all students read these guidelines.
