CIVIL ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT
REVISED CURRICULLUM 2011
SUBJECT SYLLABUS

COURSE TITLE : PLANE AND SPHERICAL TRIGONOMETRY

COURSE CODE : MATH 2033

COURSE DESCRIPTION :

This subject is non-calculus based course that deals with the conceptual foundations of classical
mechanics. It includes the basic concepts in rectilinear and rotational motion and dynamics, as well as the
physical laws and principles of Newtonian mechanics. It also covers the study of force, matter and energy
principles and the physical laws of governing universe.

NUMBER OF UNITS : 3 units


PRE-REQUISITE COURSE/S: NONE

VISION:

Clearing the paths while laying new foundations to transform the Polytechnic University of the
Philippines into an epistemic community.

MISSION:

Reflective of the great emphasis being given by the country's leadership aimed at providing appropriate
attention to the alleviation of the plight of the poor, the development of the citizens, and of the national
economy to become globally competitive, the University shall commit its academic resources and
manpower to achieve its goals through:

a. Provision of undergraduate and graduate education which meet international standards of quality
and excellence;

b. Generation and transmission of knowledge in the broad range of disciplines relevant and
responsive to the dynamically changing domestic and international environment;

c. Provision of more equitable access to higher education opportunities to deserving and qualified
Filipinos; and

d. Optimization, through efficiency and effectiveness, of social, institutional, and individual returns
and benefits derived from the utilization of higher education resources.
