General Education Outcomes

 

MGF  1106 is designed to help students acquire the following General Education competency.


Analyzing and Reasoning Quantitatively: This competency includes but is not limited to determining appropriate mathematical and computational models and methods in problem solving; understanding mathematical, statistical, and computational concepts; applying mathematical and computational models and methods in problem solving.


To do this we will present the standard techniques of Finite Mathematics: Solving linear equations and inequalities; translating word-problems into mathematical models; modeling combinatorics and probability problems; These techniques will then be applied to solve a variety of Finite Mathematics problems.  The applications will include but are not limited to mastering Finite Mathematics techniques, solving linear programming problems, using counting arguments, calculating probabilities, and solving finance problems, and solving logic problems or game theory problems. 

Student
Responsibilities 

Cheating will not be tolerated. In order to keep the class running smoothly, please refer all questions to myself. I encourage class participation, so please feel free to speak up when you have a question or do not understand.

PLEASE REFER TO THE ACADEMIC INTEGRITY POLICY AT http://www.unf.edu/registrar/forms/misconduct_policy.pdf.

Grading

Your final grade will be based on the following formula:
 
Homework & Quizzes     20%
2 Midterms (25% ea.)     50%
Final (Cumulative)
__________________
Total
    30%
    ____
   100%

Your grade will be based on a straight curve: A+ = 98-100, A = 93-98, A- = 90-93, B+ = 88-90, B = 83-88, B- = 80-83, C+ = 78-80, C = 70-78, D = 60-70, F = 0-60.

Homework
<scroll down!!>

Homework will be assigned from the textbook as stated in class and collected.

Quizzes

Quizzes last 20-30 minutes and will be given approximately every week as stated in class.
