Liberal Arts

Academic Discipline:


Assistant Dean: Steve Haynes PhD
3 Credit(s)
This course is a study of basic algebra, basic geometry, and an introduction to trigonometry. The class will review signed numbers and their operations, exponents, scientific notations, logarithms and systems of measurements. This class will also cover algebraic expressions and solving equations with one variable using shop problems and shop formulas and also will use shop problems for statements of comparison and mixture proportions. The basic geometry will cover points, planes, lines, polygons, triangles, circles and the application of these concepts. We will use key definitions in trigonometry to solve sides and angles of a triangle. UG
