This course is intended for technical students and introduces concepts from algebra, geometry, and trigonometry that will facilitate the solution of applied problems which could be encountered in technical fields. Topics include measurement, absolute and relative error, linear equations, roots, plane and solid geometric figures and their areas/volumes, finding missing dimensions of plane and solid figures, inscribed and circumscribed angles, radian measure, right triangle trigonometry, and an introduction to personal finance. A grade of C or better must be achieved in this class in order to use it as a prerequisite for a subsequent class. (Prerequisite: Competence as demonstrated on math placement exam)
