COURSE DESCRIPTION:

A review of fundamental concepts and operations and study of functions, ratio-proportion, graphs, right angle trigonometry, linear equations, factoring, fractions, quadratic equations, and exponents.

PREREQUISITES:

Place into MATT 133 with approved and documented math placement scores or by successfully completing MATT 132.

NOTES:

COURSE OBJECTIVES / GOALS:

• The student in this course must have facility in the fundamentals of Algebra.  This course is designed to provide the student with the skill in the practical application of trigonometry in the industrial technology disciplines.
• Given radicals, students will learn to change them to a simple form so that basic arithmetic operations the group can be reduced to simplest form.
• The use of a personal electronic calculator in performing operations required in solving right triangles will be demonstrated so that students will develop the ability to substitute the calculator for the menial arithmetic tasks formerly required in fulfilling course objectives.
• Given second degree equations, students will solve by factoring or by quadratic formula.
• Given angles in any quadrant, the student will learn the trig functions and apply them in any polygon situation.
• Given any angle, the student will learn radian measurement and apply radians in linear, area, and velocity problems.
• Given vector components, the student will learn to solve for the resultants by trig.

TOPICAL OUTLINE

• Use of electronic calculator in multiplying, dividing, and finding roots.
• Trig functions of any angle or number.
• Vectors
