PreReq: “C” or better in Math 25 or “C” or better in Math 26 or placement in Math 120
Designed for students in Forest TEAM & related careers. Application of trigonometry to surveying. Topics included are solving right triangles to find angle measures and lengths of sides; specifying directions (finding bearings and azimuths to plot surveys); converting between bearings and azimuths; computing precision; using Law of Sine and Law of Cosine to find the measures of angles and lengths of sides of oblique triangles; computing areas of triangles and other polygonal regions using geometric and trigonometric formulas, computing, correcting and balancing latitude and departure, computing error of closure, and finding the coordinates of the survey.
This interactive video (ITV) course is delivered using a videoconferencing system. It allows students to attend the course on a SPECIFIC DAY/TIME and CAMPUS other than the campus where the instructor originates the course. Therefore, distance learners must attend each class session at the SPECIFIC DAY/TIME and SPECIFIC LOCATION.
It is recommended that students also have an email address and access to a computer with Internet connection for “outside class” communication with instructor and classmates.
