Description
This course is a continuation of College Technical Mathematics 1A. Topics include: measurement
systems; computational geometry; right and oblique triangle trigonometry; and trigonometric functions on
the unit circle. Emphasis will be on the application of skills to technical problems. Successful
completion of or concurrent enrollment in College Technical Mathematics 1A is required for course
enrollment. Successful completion of College Technical Mathematics 1A and College Technical
Mathematics 1B is the equivalent of College Technical Mathematics 1.
