QM 107C Quantitative Methods in Automotive Tech (3)
QM 107C covers the quantitative methods, reasoning, and applications necessary to perform tasks and solve problems encountered by automotive technologists. The quantitative methods covered include computational operations; geometry and measurement; ratio, proportion, and percent; statistics and probability; and trigonometry. Applications include major automotive systems such as engines, drive train, chassis, and suspension. QM 107C 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.
Prerequisites: Any one of the following within the past two years qualifies a student for QM 107C: CR in MATH 18 or CR in MATH 22 or qualifying placement test score (COMPASS pre-algebra 40 or higher) or consent of instructor.
