# Spring 2010 Class Schedule (FLC)

*Prerequisite:*MATH 335 or a high school course in trigonometry or equivalent. This standard prerequisite has been validated based upon equivalent courses at CSU Sacramento, CSU Chico and CSU Bakersfield. Upon entering this course, the student should be able to: 1. Apply and perform calculations of angles using units of degrees and radians. 2. Evaluate and calculate trigonometric functions. 3. Solve equations involving trigonometric identities. 4. Solve quadratic equations. 5. Solve systems of equations. 6. Analyze and solve equations involving exponential and logarithmic functions. 7. Graph data in a Cartesian coordinate system and calculate slope and intercept of linear functions.

*General Education:*AA/AS Area IV; CSU Area B1; CSU Area B3; IGETC Area 5A

*Course Transferable to UC/CSU*

*Hours:*54 hours LEC ; 54 hours LAB

*Description:*This course, the first semester of General Physics, is a transferable course required for life science, liberal studies and other students and may also be taken for general education credit. Material covered will include classical mechanics (including kinematics, statics, dynamics, Newton's laws, energy and momentum conservation, rigid body motion and oscillatory motion), fluid mechanics, mechanical waves (including sound), and thermodynamics.
