Applied Technical Mathematics

Provided by: Ivy Tech

This course is designed to help students develop mathematical reasoning and real-world skills in analyzing verbal and written descriptions, translating them into algebraic, geometric, trigonometric and statistical statements and applying them to solve problems in fabrication, manufacturing, and business; The course will include at least six lab activities or projects to allow faculty and students to apply mathematics principle to work-related situations;

Course Objectives:

  • 1 Geometry: Upon completion, students will be able to complete the following: a) Calculate and use perimeter, area, volume, and surface area to find same or unknown measures of parts
  • b) Graph linear equations in two dimensions, calculate and apply slope of a line
  • c) Identify the parts of a circle including diameter, radius, circumference, sectors and segments and to calculate the area of circles
  • Calculate volumes of regular cylinders
  • d) Perform common constructions using a straightedge and compass
  • e) Find angles of a regular polygon
  • f) Find the measures of complementary, supplementary, vertical, interior, exterior, and corresponding angles and calculate the sum of the measures of the interior angles of polygons
  • g) Use proportion as applied to similar figures
  • h) Apply the Pythagorean Theorem
  • 2 Trigonometry: Upon completion, students be able to complete the following: a) Determine the sine, cosine and tangent of angles in right triangles from direct measurement of lengths of sides b) Utilize the Law of Sines and Law of Cosines to solve for unknown sides and angles in triangles
  • c) Determine angle (degree/minute/seconds, radians) measures using inverse Trigonometric functions 3 Conversion: Upon completion, students will be able to complete the following: a) Recognize and operate within and between different measurement systems including dimensional analysis
