Joseph Terreri

I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics from Cal Poly Pomona in 1986.  I earned a Master’s Degree in Mathematics from Cal Poly Pomona in 1988.

I started teaching in the Developmental Math Program at Cal Poly Pomona in 1986 while I was earning my Master’s Degree.  It was then that I realized that I enjoyed teaching math to adult learners, so I decided to try to get a teaching job at a Community College. 

I was hired as an adjunct professor at Mt. San Antonio College in 1988.   I was hired as a full-time professor in 1989, and have been working for Mt. SAC since then.

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.


My office hours will be held on-campus on Tuesdays, Thursday, and Fridays. You are welcome to contact me for appointment availability. 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.
