Mathematical Applications for the Management, Life,
and Social Sciences, 7th Edition, by Harshbarger & Reynolds
Contents:
We will cover chapters 9  14, preceded by a brief review.
Prerequisite:
Math 1050 or 1090. I expect you to
have a reasonable understanding of algebra.
Grading:
Grades will be based on homework, three inclass exams, and one
comprehensive final exam. The tentative dates for each of these are
listed on the Lecture Schedule and on the course website. Should you
miss class, you are still responsible for the homework and material
presented that day. A missed exam will simply be awarded zero points.
Makeup exams will only be given in extenuating circumstances, and only
if I am notified before
the exam.
The breakdown for the
coursework will be:
Homework: 35%
Midterm exams: 15% x 3 = 45%
Final: 20%
Letter grades will be
assigned based on the following scale:
93100 = A
9093 = A
8590 = B+ 8085 = B
7580 = B
7075 = C+ 6570 = C
6065 = C
5560 = D+ 5055 = D
< 50 = E
Homework:
Homework will be assigned at each class session.
You are responsible to hand in homework on the days indicated on
the lecture schedule when class begins.
Late homework will not be accepted. Should
you plan to be absent on a day homework is due, you are responsible to
make the necessary
arrangements to turn in your work before your absence. In consideration of those grading
your work, please be legible and clear. The
course webpage will have an uptodate listing of homework assignments. At the end of the semester I will drop your
lowest homework score.
Extra Credit: There will be no extra
credit.
Final:
