Candice Sung Kim

I received a B.S. in Electrical Engineering and M.S. in Applied Mathematics.  I have been a professor in the Mathematics and Computer Science Department at Mt. SAC since 2000.  I have taught all levels of mathematics courses at Mt. SAC from Algebra to Calculus.  It's been a great pleasure to watch students learn mathematics and make progress in their educational endeavors.


Hello Mountie Math Students!
I am so excited that you have decided to take College Algebra or Precalculus Mathematics! Your success is important to me, so to help prepare you for the next part of your educational journey, I would like to share some information with you about my courses and classroom environments.


Click on one of my classes below to explore the structure and goals of each class.


      • Math 130 (20262) FALL 2021

        Online Class Search:
        ** This class will display as "Online" with a Meeting Time, and as "Web" on a separate line in the online class search, to indicate a fully online class that has both a synchronous component (scheduled class meetings via Zoom) and an asynchronous component (independent work).


        Prerequisites: None


        Class Structure:
        My class is a combination of synchronous and asynchronous learning, which means we will meet on Zoom on Fridays, and you will work independently the rest of the week. You are expected to participate on Zoom via Zoom chat, speaking, breakout rooms, and polls. Course materials, including lecture notes, professor's lecture videos, publisher videos, and supplemental YouTube videos, will be provided on Canvas. The exams will be in the form of PDF uploads and MyMathLab assessments, and will be conducted on Zoom during class time.


        A physical or digital copy of the textbook , MATH 130: College Algebra, 13th Ed., Lial, Hornsby, Schneider, is required. Access to MyMathLab is required, and will come with digital access to the ebook. Free access to Desmos is also required. Homework assignments will be in the form of worksheets, online homework, take-home quizzes (not proctored / timed), and groupwork. Homework assignments will generally be due on Thursdays and Fridays.


        Required Materials:

        Reliable Internet Connection

        Writing Utensils

        Printer (Strongly Recommended)

        Paper (Printer or Lined)

        MyMathLab Access

        Scientific Calculator or App

        Desktop/Laptop/Tablet/Smartphone

        Built-in or External Microphone

        Scanner or Free Scanning App

      • Math 160 FALL 2021

        Online Class Search:
        ** This class will display a Building/Room number and a Meeting Time in the online class search. It will also display as "Web" on a separate line to indicate a hybrid class that meets on-campus and has an asynchronous online component (independent work).


        Prerequisites: Math 150 or Appropriate Placement


        Class Structure:
        My class is an asynchronous hybrid, which means we will meet on-campus on Tuesdays (20340) and Thursdays (20342), and you will work independently the rest of the week. Exams will be conducted on-campus, in a traditional classroom setting, and in the form of MyOpenMath assessments. Course materials, including lecture notes, professor's lecture videos and publisher videos, will be provided on Canvas.


        We will be using a zero-cost textbook for this class! Access to the textbook , MATH 160: Precalculus, OpenStax, is strongly recommended. Access to MyOpenMath (Free) is required. Free access to Desmos is also required. Homework assignments will be in the form of worksheets, online homework, take-home quizzes (not proctored / timed), and groupwork. Homework assignments will generally be due on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays.

Our classroom environment will be one that supports your diverse perspectives and honors your identities. Names are very personal and very powerful. The name by which we choose to be called represents who we are. I recognize that calling students by their preferred name is crucial to ensuring that the classroom environment (whether in person or online) is a safe and inclusive space for learning. If you have a preferred first name that you would like me to use, or would like to share your pronouns with me, please feel free to let me know!


I would also like to take a moment to acknowledge that Mt. SAC is geographically situated on the traditional lands of the native, indigenous peoples whose land was taken from them. I ask you to join me in acknowledging their community, their elders both past and present, as well as future generations. May we strive to honor the land and the people who have stewarded it throughout the generations.


Please make sure to log in to your Canvas courses daily to keep up with all announcements, materials, and due dates. Canvas can be accessed through your Mt. SAC portal or at https://mtsac.instructure.com.


My office hours will be held on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays via Zoom sessions and Canvas inbox. I look forward to working with everyone, and please feel free to email me if you have any questions.


The Math and Computer Science Department is committed to helping our students achieve their math educational goals. We want you to succeed and excel in transfer-level mathematics. We recognize your potential and are here to support you! Whether you are here to obtain a degree, complete transfer requirements, or simply expand your knowledge, we will strive to provide resources that you may need along your journey. Explore the resources below for more information on how our campus can help you achieve your educational goals.
