## Prerequisites

MTH 060 or higher or minimum placement Math Level 10.

## Description

Presents algebraic, geometric, and trigonometric concepts in a practical and applied workplace problem-solving context. Includes mathematical operations with real numbers, measurement, ratios, proportions, percentages, dimensional analysis, order of operations, solving equations numerically and symbolically, right triangle trigonometry, area, perimeter, surface area, volume, and weights.

## Learning outcomes

1. Evaluate real number numerical expressions by hand and with the use of appropriate use of technology.
2. Solve linear, higher order, and literal equations.
3. Convert standard and metric units of measure in the calculation of length, area, volume, and weight.
4. Apply algebra, geometry, and trigonometry concepts to solve contextual workplace applications and projects.
5. Analyze context and data to determine appropriate mathematical process and problem-solving strategy.
6. Communicate problem-solving processes and solutions.
