MTH 141 - Technical Mathematics II*
An extension of the concepts developed in MTH 140. Topics included are complex numbers, higher degree equations, oblique triangle trigonometry, exponential equations, logarithms, systems of linear and quadratic equations, and inequalities. NOTE: A specific calculator will be required of all students in this course.
Prerequisite: MTH 140 with a grade of C or better or equivalent. *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 Asscociate in Science degree.
