Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • Use the four basic mathematical operations to solve problems involving whole numbers, fractional numbers, decimals, percent, powers, roots, signed numbers and the conversion of measurements.
  • Solve word problems using basic algebraic operations.
  • Solve linear equations and manipulate formulae (literal equations).
  • Solve problems by applying basic angle properties and Pythagorean theorem.
  • Solve problems involving triangles by using trigonometric ratios and the Sine or Cosine Laws.
  • Resolve a vector into rectangular components.
  • Find the resultant of the vector components graphically or by application of the Sine or Cosine Laws.
  • Convert between radians and degrees to solve problems involving the central angle, radius, arc length, and sectional areas of circles.
  • Determine the perimeter, area, and volume of basic geometric shapes.
  • Employ graphs in solving linear equations.
  • Solve line problems: the slope of a line, equation of a line and the distance between two points.
  • Solve problems involving ratios, proportions and variations.
  • Solve the system of two linear equations alegebraically, graphically and with determinants.
  • Simplify algebraic expressions by performing algebraic operations and factoring.
  • Solve problems by identifying and solving quadratic equations graphically, by factoring with the quadratic formula.
  • Manipulate logharitmic expressions and exponential functions.
