Description

## Objective:

The course objective is to learn the essential math skills necessary for future success in an Associate's of Science (A.S.) degree program in technology. The course of study includes a review of basic math functions, including trades-based examples, the metric system, formulas, introductory algebra, applied geometry, and some practical applications of trigonometry.

## Learning Outcomes:

• Upon completion of the course, the student will be able to simplify, add, subtract, multiply, and divide fractions
• Solve problems involving percent, ratios, and proportions
• Prepare and use formulas to solve problems
• Identify metric prefixes and their values
• Apply conversion factors to create a unit that's larger or smaller than the base unit
• Define the terms mass, density, force, torque, and pressure, and identify the metric units used to measure each one
• Use a conversion table to convert metric units to English units and English units to metric units
• Substitute given numerical values for letters in a formula
• Transform and solve equations and formulas
• Raise a number to a power and multiply and divide terms containing exponents
• Identify the properties and types of angles and figures
• Use the Pythagorean theorem to solve triangles
• Calculate the areas and perimeters of common shapes
• Explain the use of variables in formulas
• Name the base units most commonly used in the metric system and identify what they're used to measure
• Use formulas to calculate distance, electrical current, and the volume of a pyramid and a sphere
• Perform basic arithmetic operations with signed numbers
• Use the order of operations for solving problems involving multiple operations
• Remove parentheses and simplify and expression
• Determine the surface area and volume of common geometric solids self-check quizzes and graded exams in lesson 5 and final exam
• Solve practical problems using trigonometry
• Define and compute the value of trigonometric functions such as sine, cosine, and tangent
• And use the various trigonometric identities to solve for angles greater than 90 degrees.
