MT 122 - Technical Mathematics II


Credit Hours: 4

The second course in a two-semester sequence of intermediate algebra and trigonometry with technical applications. Topics included are: trigonometric functions of any angle; oblique triangle; graphs of trigonometric functions; exponents and radicals; exponential and log functions; variation; inequalities; and introduction to statistics. The scientific calculator will be used throughout the course.

Fulfills SUNY General Education -- Mathematics.

Course Outcomes
Upon Completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • solve equations including exponential, logarithmic, or trigonometric functions;
  • evaluate trigonometric functions and their inverses for angles measured in degrees and radians;
  • solve oblique triangles using the law of sines or law of cosines;
  • sketch and interpret the graph of trigonometric, exponential, and logarithmic functions;
  • perform fundamental operations, (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division) on algebraic terms involving exponents and radicals, and logarithmic functions;
  • graph functions using log and semi-log paper;
  • analyze and solve proportion and variation problems;
  • solve basic probability problems;
  • find area under the normal curve and solve application problems;
  • develop and interpret X bar and R charts for statistical process control; and
  • summarize and interpret data using frequency distribution, measures of central tendency, and measures of dispersion.

Technology Objectives:

  • analyze and interpret the following based on a graphing calculator or a symbolic computer program:
    • graphs of trigonometric functions;
    • graphs of exponential functions; and
    • graphs of logarithmic functions.
  • Perform statistical operations using a computer software program (optional).
