COURSE NUMBER: MATT133
COURSE TITLE:Technical Mathematics
DIVISION:Technology
IAI CODE(S):
SEMESTER CREDIT HOURS:4
CONTACT HOURS:60
STUDENT ENGAGEMENT HOURS:180
DELIVERY MODE:In-Person

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:
MATT132 OR
Approved documented math placement scores for MATT133

NOTES: 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.


STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES:
Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:
  • Change given radicals to a simple form so that basic arithmetic operations the group can be reduced to simplest form.
  • Use 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.
  • Solve second degree equations by factoring or by quadratic formula.
  • Learn the trig functions and apply them in any polygon situation in given angles in any quadrant.
  • Larn radian measurement and apply radians in linear, area, and velocity problems in any given angle.
  • Learn to solve for the resultants by trig. in given vector components.
