Attendance

Regular and prompt attendance is
essential for optimal progress in the course.

General Education
Outcomes

MGF 1106is 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.

Your final grade will be based on
the following formula:

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.
