MTH 140 - Technical Mathematics I*
A course dealing with the algebraic and trigonometric concepts needed to solve problems in various technical areas. It includes a study of linear and trigonometric equations, dimensional analysis, ratios and proportion, functions and their graphs, right triangle trigonometry, graphs of trigonometric functions, vectors, and statistical topics. NOTE: A specific calculator will be required of all students in this course.
Prerequisite: MTH 135 with a grade of C or better or MTH 104 with a grade of C or better, or MCC Level 8 Mathematics placement. *MTH 135, MTH 140 and/or MTH 141 are required in various technology programs. They do not fulfill a mathematics requirement for an Associate in Arts or Associate in Science degree.
