QM 197C Quantitative Methods in Automotive Tech (3) QM 197C covers the quantitative methods, reasoning, and applications necessary to perform tasks and solve problems encountered by automotive technologists. Topics include computational operations; geometry and measurement; ratio, proportion, and percent; probability and statistics; and trigonometry. Applications involve major automotive systems such as engines, electrical, drive train, chassis, suspension, and ventilation. QM 197C is designed for Automotive Technology degrees and certificates but does not satisfy the Foundation Symbolic Reasoning (FS) core requirement of an Associate in Arts degree.
