Objective Learning Resources Course Content Study Plan

Math 2 is a course offered by the department of Basic Sciences. It is a 2-credit-hour course with 4 contact hours. The course provides an intensive study on fundamental topics of Matrices, Trigonometry, and Introduction to Calculus. On the completion of the course, the student will be able to:

  • Apply the basic operations on matrices and compute product of matrices.
  • Find determinant and inverse of a matrix and use it to solve systems of equations.
  • Evaluate trigonometric and inverse trigonometric functions, and graph trigonometric functions in rectangular form.
  • Solve trigonometric equations and use them to solve trigonometric problems.
  • Use trigonometric identities to simplify and solve equations.
  • Evaluate various limit problems both algebraically and graphically, and evaluate limits at infinity and infinite limits.
  • Check the continuity of various types of functions.
  • Differentiate various types of functions using the differentiation rules.
  • Find antiderivative of a function, and integrate various functions using the various integration methods.
