This course provides an integrated approach to technology and the skills required to manipulate, display, and interpret mathematical functions and formulas used in problem solving. Topics include the properties of plane and solid geometry, area and volume, and basic proportion applications; simplification, evaluation, and solving of algebraic equations and inequalities and radical functions; complex numbers; right triangle trigonometry; and systems of equations. Upon completion, students will be able to demonstrate the ability to use mathematics and technology for problem-solving, analyzing and communicating results.

Student Learning Outcomes
1. Use geometric principles to solve industrial application problems involving perimeter, area, and volume.
2. Employ basic algebraic operations to simplify, evaluate, and solve proportions, radical and other algebraic functions, equations, and inequalities.
3. Perform basic algebraic operations involving complex numbers.
4. Solve applied problems using trigonometric principles involving right triangles.
5. Solve applied problems using systems of equations involving two and three variables.
6. Use technology to solve practical problems and communicate results.
