Technical Mathematics I

Hrs: 30
Tuition: $330
Terms Offered: I, II, III, IV, V
Course #: 5500
Days: Term 1-2 T/Th, Term 3-5 M/W
Time: 5:30 - 7:45 p.m.

Technical mathematics, or "shop math", is a course based upon the application of mathematic principles in an industrial environment. Exercises and examples are used to demonstrate how to apply mathematics in the workplace rather than "hands-on labs". Term I covers basic arithmetic, measurement, algebra and shop math formulas. Applications include machining, motor sizing, hydraulics and mechanical drives.
