This course will apply principles of mathematics, geometry, and basic trigonometry to applications in manufacturing. Topics will include proportions, calculation of machine speed and feed and geometric relationships of triangles and circles. Problem solving will require the use of the Pythagorean Theorem and the sine, cosine, and tangent functions to solve right triangles. The Law of Sines and Law of Cosines will be used to solve oblique triangle applications. Group 2 course.
