ET 50 Technical Mathematics (4)
Credit, Degree Applicable
Applied mathematics designed to develop the ability to solve technical problems. Practical application of algebra, geometry, and trigonometry to basic problems in the applied sciences, including the study of alternating current circuitry with emphasis on periodic functions, vector analysis, logarithms, and exponential functions.
After successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
- Outcome 1: Assess the most efficient method of vector addition for a particular problem and deconstruct vectors into their components.
- Outcome 2: Diagram and relate trigonometric functions, logarithmic and exponential functions of any base, radicals, exponents and logs.
- Outcome 3: Distinguish between different numbering systems such as binary, octal, and hexadecimal.
- Outcome 4: Synthesize methods of solutions for systems of n equations with n unknowns.
- Outcome 5: Formulate methods of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division for complex numbers.
- Outcome 6: Assess best-fit curves to experimental data
