RRRM 1450 - Applied Mathematics 1

Renewable Resources Resource Management Part-time Studies Course

School of Computing and Academic Studies

To support you and your education, BCIT is adapting applied learning in formats appropriate to the unfolding global situation. Spring and Summer PTS classes are being delivered in an online format unless you are notified otherwise.

Course Details

Perform basic algebraic manipulations, solve word problems, and apply basic principles of geometry and trigonometry. Emphasis on application to forestry related mathematics.



This course was retired after the Spring/Summer 2007 term and is no longer offered through BCIT Part-time Studies.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, the student will be able to:

  • Determine the accuracy and precision of measured values in problems, and use this information in appropriately rounding off calculation results.
  • Use ratios, proportions, and percentages to solve scale, mixture and dilution, variation and change problems.
  • Use right triangle trigonometric ratios to solve typical problems of slope and horizontal distances, latitudes and departures, tree heights, etc. These ratios will be related to the commonly used measurement systems for slopes in percent units, and compass bearings in field measurements.
  • Apply a variety of geometric models to approximate the areas and volumes of physical objects, including cylinders, cones and regular solids.
  • Apply Sine and Cosine Laws to determine angles and distances in irregular triangles, and relate these results back to standard measurement systems of slope and bearing measurements.

Effective as of Fall 2003
