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.
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.
- 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).
