D–CourseDescriptions
MATHEMATICS
Mathematics for ElectronicsApplications
MATH 190
3.00
Prerequisite: None
Because of the differingmathematical backgrounds of students enrolling in this course, thematerial is individualizedwith respect to
content and rate of progress.Mastery of thematerial is obtained by the solution ofmath problemswhich arise in the study of electronics.
Topics covered include powers of 10, an algebra review, graphs, exponents and radicals. This coursemay not transfer to a baccalaureate
degree of art or sciencewithin the universities in theNevadaSystem ofHigher Education (NSHE).
Calculus III
MATH 283
4.00
Prerequisite:Agrade of 'C' or better inMATH 182.
Acontinuation ofMath182. Topics covered include vectors, differentiating and integrating functions ofmany variables, optimization,
parametric curves and surfaces, line integrals, flux integrals and vector fields. Throughout the course topicswill be viewed geometrically,
numerically and algebraically. This course is oriented toward students ofmathematics, physical science and engineering. Note: Computer
use and graphing calculatormay be required (TI-83/84 recommended).
Differential Equations
MATH 285
3.00
Prerequisite:Agrade of 'C' or better inMATH 182 or equivalent. Agraphing calculatormay be required for this course.
Theory and solving techniques for constant and variable coefficient linear equations and a variety of non-linear equations. Emphasis on
those differential equations arising from realworld phenomena. Note: Computer use and graphing calculatormay be required (TI-83/84
recommended).

Prerequisite: None
Presents the theoretical basis for hydraulic and pneumaticcircuitry. Attention is given to circuit components and howtheywork. Assembly,
disassembly and troubleshooting isemphasized.
Small EngineOperation andMaintenance
MT
109
3.00
Prerequisite: None
This course introduces students to the operation andmaintenance of small engines used in a variety of technical settings. Studentswill
operate,maintain, and repair two-cycle and four-cycle engines. This coursemay not transfer to a baccalaureate degree of art or science
within the universities in theNevadaSystem ofHigher Education (NSHE).
Material Science
MT
150
3.00 - 4.00
Prerequisite: None
Offers a study ofmetallurgical properties in an effort to understand both the behavior ofmetals and their service to industry.
Characteristics during heating, cooling, shaping, forming, and the stresses related to theirmechanical properties are covered. The theory
behind the alloys, heat treatment processes, and the impact they have on strength, toughness, hardness, elasticity, ductility,malleability,
wear resistance and fatigue resistance is investigated.This course fulfills the natural sciences degree requirement for nontransferableAAS
degrees only andmay not transfer to a baccalaureate degree of art or sciencewithin the universities in theNevadaSystem ofHigher
Education (NSHE).
