MAT 116 - Math for the Technologies 2

Credits: 4
4 Lecture Hours

Prerequisites: MAT 114  
This course is a continuation of MAT 114 . Topics include functions and graphs, vectors, oblique triangles, exponential and logarithmic functions, complex numbers and conic sections.
Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of the course, the student will:

  1. Compare and contrast exponential and logarithmic functions.
  2. Determine the solutions of exponential and logarithmic equations.
  3. Adapt the laws of sines and cosines to determine the missing parts of oblique triangles.
  4. Analyze trigonometric functions and sketch their graphs.
  5. Verify trigonometric identities and determine the solutions of trigonometric equations.
  6. Apply basic mathematical operations to complex numbers.
  7. Discriminate between various conic sections and determine their unique characteristics.
Listed Topics
  1. Exponential and logarithmic functions
  2. Trigonometric functions (Law of sines, Law of cosines, identities, equations, graphs)
  3. Complex numbers
  4. Conic sections
Reference Materials
Each student will be required to have a graphing calculator and textbook adopted by the Mathematics Department at the specific campus. If available, students may purchase a student solutions manual or make use of the interactive software and videotapes located in the math laboratory.
