Games of Chance (Math 530) — Summer 2004Location and Time: 110 Bouillon, MTWR, 8:50 – 10:00 P.M.Games of Chance (Math 530) — Summer 2004 Course Prerequisites: Math 130.1 or permission Location and Time: 110 Bouillon, MTWR, 8:50 – 10:00 P.M. Instructor: Dr. Yvonne Chueh Office: 118 Bouillon Office Hours: MTWR 2:00 – 3:00 P.M., and by appointment. Check www.cwu.edu/~chueh for my current class schedule. Office Phone: 963-2124 CWU e-mail: [email protected] Final Exam: Thursday, August 5, 8:50-10:00 pm Textbook: No textbook is required. Student Outcomes: Calculator: The TI-83+ is recommended. The calculator (and computers in general) can be a powerful tool for understanding mathematical ideas and for solving problems provided you learn how (and when) to use it. Course Content: We will cover the following topics: I. Elementary counting methods II. Poker-5-hand-Stud III. Expected value IV. Chuck-a-luck V. Keno VI. Slot machines VII. Roulette VIII. Craps IX. Blackjack X. Gambler’s Ruin Testing and Grading: There will be two 100-point, one-hour exams, and a 100 point final exam, given as scheduled on August 5, during the normal class time. You will have a minimum of 4 days notice for any exam. One or more of these exams may be group exams. In addition, I may at any time spring a small, unannounced 10-15 point quiz on you, if I get the sense that you are not working as hard as you should be! If you work 1hard on the worksheets that are assigned, you will have a good idea as to what the exams will be like. PLEASE USE PENCIL ON ALL YOUR EXAMS! In addition to exams, there will be 100 points given, subjectivity, for participation and attendance. Since we do not have a book, it is especially important that you make it to class. If you come to class every day and participate reasonable well in class discussions, you can expect to get close to 100 points. Miss once or twice, and participate well, and you can expect something near 90. More than five misses and you are looking at a maximum of 50 points. There is NO predetermined scale for grades. A 90% average will earn an A some quarters, but only a B in others. After each exam, you will learn how you are doing relative to the class. Homework assigned should be done but not turned in unless specifically requested. At the beginning of each day, we will go over the material on the previous day’s worksheet. Students with disabilities: If you require accommodation based on a documented disability, have emergency medical information to share, or need special arrangements in case of emergency evacuation, please discuss the situation with me as soon as possible.
