College of Arts & Sciences (WARSC)
College Mathematics for Aviation I
This is a pre-calculus course designed for the student aviation. Topics include a review of the fundamentals of algebra; linear equations and inequalities, quadratic equations; variation; polynomial, rational, exponential, logarithmic and trigonometric functions; radian measures; right triangle solutions, vectors and the laws of sines and cosines.

This course provides students the necessary algebra, geometry and trigonometry required for the study of topics in aviation.

1. Use the basic properties of the real number system to perform algebraic operations including factoring, operations with fractions, exponents and radicals.

2. Solve linear, quadratic, absolute value, rational, exponential, and logarithmic equations. Transpose formulas and solve verbal problems that require the use these types of equations.

3. Solve linear inequalities and identify their solutions by using interval notation and graphs.

4. Use the distance, midpoint, point-slope-intercept formulas to solve problems involving line and line segments.

5. Solve verbal problems involving direct, inverse and joint variation.

6. Define function, domain and range; and identify examples of each.

7. Graph linear, quadratic, polynomial and rational functions by using standard forms, symmetry, intercepts, asymptotes, and vertical and horizontal shifts.

8. Graph exponential and logarithmic functions and solve word problems dealing with these functions.

9. Convert radians to degrees, degrees to radians and solve arc length problems using radians.

10. Define the six trigonometric functions and the fundamental trigonometric identities, and use them to find the values of various trigonometric functions.

11. Use the six trigonometric functions to solve right triangle problems, resolve vectors into rectangular components, and solve force and displacement problems using vectors.

12. Solve word problems by using linear systems of equations.

13. Solve oblique triangle problems using the Law of Sines and the Law of Cosines.

Located on the Daytona Beach Campus, the Jack R. Hunt Library is the primary library for all students of the Worldwide Campus. The Chief Academic Officer strongly recommends that every faculty member, where appropriate, require all students in his or her classes to access the Hunt Library or a comparable college-level local library for research. The results of this research can be used for class projects such as research papers, group discussion, or individual presentations. Students should feel comfortable with using the resources of the library.
