Mathematics for Civil Engineering I

The purpose of this course is to refresh and upgrade existing mathematical skills such as SI and imperial units, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and functions. Students study properties of lines and angles. Students will calculate perimeter and area of basic geometric figures, surface area and volume of solid geometric figures with examples in civil engineering. Students manipulate trigonometric functions of acute and obtuse angles and solve problems. Students will be introduced to the basics of using Microsoft Excel, and apply this understanding to solve basic mathematical problems and graphing.
