**Course Description**: This course covers topics from algebra and trigonometry at a level and emphasis appropriate for applied technology majors who will continue on with at least one semester of applied calculus. Topics are chosen from the following: functions and their graphs, angles and triangles, systems of linear equations with determinants, trigonometric functions, equations and identities, exponential and logarithmic functions, and a general treatment of conic sections.

**General Education Goals**: MTH 113 is affirmed in the following General Education Foundation Category: **Quantitative Knowledge and Skills. **The corresponding General Education Goal is as follows: Students will use appropriate mathematical and statistical concepts and operations to interpret data and to solve problems.

**Course Goals: **Upon successful completion of this course, students should be able to do the following:

- demonstrate knowledge of the fundamental concepts and theories from algebra, geometry and pre-calculus;
- utilize various algebra and pre-calculus, problem-solving and critical-thinking techniques to set up and solve applied problems in geometry, sciences, and other fields;
- communicate accurate mathematical terminology and notation in written and/or oral form in order to explain strategies to solve problems as well as to interpret found solutions; and
- use calculators effectively as a tool to solve such problems as those described above.
