MAT 110 - Technical Mathematics I

Course Description

MAT 110 is designed for students entering technology fields. The course begins with a review of number operations, data handling, geometry and algebraic expressions. Algebraic fractions, linear equations and inequalities, linear functions, graphing and basic trigonometry are included. It is highly recommended that students in this course possess a hand held calculator.

Upon successful completion of this course, students should be able to:

Perform calculations on experimental data and report results to the appropriate precision.
Factor certain polynomials and perform arithmetic operations on algebraic fractions.
Solve linear equations and linear inequalities in one variable.
Graph linear equations in two variables and interpret their properties.
Solve triangles using trigonometric ratios and the laws of sines and cosines.
Solve applied problems involving the competencies above.
