2-3 PM on Wednesdays; 5-6 PM on Thursdays
Class Meets: Tuesday and Thursday, in LS 111
Text: 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 in-class 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. Make-up exams will only be given in extenuating circumstances, and only if I am notified before the exam.
The breakdown for the
coursework will be:
Mid-term exams: 15% x 3 = 45%
Letter grades will be
assigned based on the following scale:
93-100 = A 90-93 = A-
85-90 = B+ 80-85 = B 75-80 = B-
70-75 = C+ 65-70 = C 60-65 = C-
55-60 = D+ 50-55 = 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 up-to-date 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.
Disclaimer: Policies stated within this syllabus are subject to change, following verbal announcement in class. Students are responsible for knowing the current version, always to be found on the course website.
Welcome to class! I look forward to a productive, engaging, and fun semester.
