MATH1000 - Technical Mathematics

3 (3/0/0)
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.
  1. Review basic mathematical operations involving whole numbers, decimals, fractions, signed numbers, percents and order of operations.
  2. Perform metric system conversions and apply to program-specific problems.
  3. Solve basic linear equations.
  4. Manipulate formulas.
  5. Solve and apply variation problems.
  6. Demonstrate usage of a scientific calculator.
