Another post in an effort to digitize all of the work I did in the Langara Professional Photo-Imaging Program. You can see all the previous posts here. Math 1120 was focused Math specifically for Photographers and is designed to compliment the other courses I was taking at the time, Photo 1118 and Photo 1128. There’s a surprising amount of math involved with Photography,  through this course I learned:

  • Order of Operations (BEDMAS)
  • Algebra
  • Quadratic Equation Application
  • Logs
  • Right Angle and Acute Angle Trigonometry (Soh, Cah, Toa)
  • Cosine and Sine Law
  • Reflection and Refraction
  • Non-Linear Equations
  • Scientific Notation
  • Equation Manipulation
  • Exponential Rules
  • Simple Interest (per year)
  • Compound Interest (Investments, Loans etc)
  • to show your work, you’ll never know what you’ll get bonus marks for!

Now anyone that knew me up until Grade 12 knows that Math is my Kryptonite. I’ve never cared where “x” was… but it turns out if you bring cameras and money into the equation I’m like a duck to water.

Until the next binder…
