Functions, Analytic Geometry, Probability and Statistics. A Study Guide of the Science and Engineering Technician Curriculum.
This study guide is part of an interdisciplinary course entitled the Science and Engineering Technician (SET) Curriculum. The course integrates elements from the disciplines of chemistry, physics, mathematics, mechanical technology, and electronic technology, with the objective of training technicians in the use of electronic instruments and their applications. This guide provides that part of the mathematics content related to functions, analytic geometry, probability, and statistics. The following topics are included: (1) variation; (2) polynomial equations of higher degree; (3) analytic geometry; (4) graphs of the trigonometric functions; (5) counting and probability; and (6) statistics and curve fitting.
