Subject Title
Mathematics - Functions and Relations

Subject Description
Mathematics 290 is a continuation of ALG190. Students taking this course should be able to identify and relate to technological problems. The ability to solve word problems is a crucial component of this course. Students will be required to focus on the interpretation of data presented in word problems and then convert the information into mathematical procedures that lead to the required solution. Emphasis will be placed on solving practical problems related to the field of fire protection engineering.

Credit Status
One college subject credit. ALG190 is a pre-requisite for this course.

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

1. Manipulate and solve formulas applied to fire protection
2. solve applied problems involving proportion and set up and solve problems involving direct, inverse, joint and combined variations;
3. solve exponential growth/decay and growth to an upper limit problems and convert expressions from exponential to logarithmic form;
4. evaluate, manipulate and simplify logarithmic expressions;
5. solve exponential and logarithmic equations and apply the skill to word problems.
