Course
Number: OCSUP 107 
Credits: 5 
Hours per Quarter: 50
Lecture Hours:50

Description
Integrated course of algebra, geometry and trigonometry. Practical applications to vocational and technical programs are emphasized through the use of contextualized smallgroup classroom activities and guided practical problem solving. Topics include graphing in the Cartesian coordinate system; graphing and solving linear equations and systems of linear equations; geometric concepts of angles (degree and radian measure) and triangles, including the Pythagorean theorem and similar triangles; trigonometric concepts of sine, cosine, and tangent, and solving right triangles. Prerequisite: Grade of C or better in OCSUP 106, or appropriate placement score.
