MAT 1200 Technical Mathematics

This is a context-centered course intended for majors in Construction Management Technology, Architectural Technology, and Civil Engineering Technology. It contains collaborative labs which apply the mathematical methods to relevant applications. Students will apply properties of shapes in 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional geometry; use dimensional analysis to convert between systems of units; use scientific notation; apply vector analysis and basic trigonometry to find indirect measurements; use and solve linear and quadratic functions and equations; and use systems of linear equations in applications and find their solutions. Four classroom, two lab hours per week.
