MATH1000 - Technical Mathematics
This course presents basic mathematical topics as they are applied in a technical program. The course includes a review of basic mathematical operations and continues with the development of algebraic and trigonometric skills in a technical setting. Most concepts will be applied through course-specific problems. This course is not an MnTC Goal Area 4 mathematics course, nor does it prepare students for taking an MnTC Goal Area 4 mathematics course.
