### Math Review

This course assumes Mathematics at the Trigonometry/Pre-calculus level with mastery of prior math courses including algebra, geometry. etc. This module includes a quick refresher of the most important math concepts from trigonometry the we will need during this course. A few references are also provided for those students need refreshing on past math courses,

A person's proficiency in Mathematics is one of the major predictors of both future academic success and career earnings. Most academic programs leading to high paying careers have mathematics requirements at Calculus or above and require students who are numerically literate. All physics and engineering programs require incoming freshman to take multi-course sequences in Calculus and Calculus based physics during their Freshmen year with more advanced course work beyond.
