Subject Title
Mathematics 111

Subject Description
This is a general technical mathematics course for engineering technology.  It is designed to prepare students for further mathematics in technical programs as well as other professional courses. This course covers unit conversions, trigonometric functions, solving triangles, algebraic equations, and graphing. Emphasis is placed on developing problem solving techniques by applying topics related to engineering problems.

Credit Status
One subject credit in Civil Engineering Technology, Environmental Technology advanced diploma programs and Civil Engineering Technician and Environmental Technician diploma programs.

Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this subject the student will be able to:

1. Convert units of measurement such as between degrees, radians, and revolutions, DMS (degrees, minute, second); imperial and metric unit conversions.
2. Apply correct rounding techniques and significant figures for technical calculations
3. Find angle of trigonometric function and solve practical problems involving right and oblique triangles;
4. Resolve a vector into components, combine components into a resultant vector, and determine the vector sum of two or more vectors;
5. Use the laws of exponents to simplify and combine expressions containing powers, solve algebraic equations, and check an apparent solution to the equations;
6. Find the linear equation of graphs with relation to perpendicular and parallel lines, and find the point of interception for a system of equations;
7. Solve practical problems that require finding properties of geometric shapes such as sides, angles, areas, perimeters, circumference, diameter, radius, and sector.
