Course Description: The purpose of this course is to refresh and upgrade existing mathematical skills such as algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and more. Emphasis is placed on developing problem solving techniques by applying these math topics to related engineering problems. This course caters to students enrolled in the School of Science & Engineer Technology at Durham College in Ontario, Canada.
This course is being delivered free by a former Durham College professor.
Required Materials: A scientific calculator is required, preferably a Casio fx-991ES Plus (↓).
Similar Course Offered at: Niagara College, Centennial College, Seneca College, and Humber College.
Here you'll be introduced to the bare basics of mathematics. Topics include commonly used words and phrases, symbols, and how to follow the order of operations.
An introduction to numerical computation. Emphasis is placed on scientific and engineering notation, the rule of significant figures, and converting between SI and Imperial units.
Trigonometry with Right Triangles
Here we focus on right angle triangles within quadrant I of an x-y plane. None of the angles we evaluate here are greater than 90°. A unit on trigonometry with oblique triangles is covered later.
Trigonometry with Oblique Triangles
This unit is a continuation of trigonometry with right triangles except we'll extend our understanding to deal with angles *greater* than 90°. Resolving and combining vectors will be covered at the end of this unit.
Introduction to Algebra
