108 syllabus Math 108 section 200 Topics in Mathematics: Instructor: Dr Bill Briden [email protected] Office room 222 Shepard mon 12-4, thur 12-3, sat 9-12 Text : For all Practical Purposes by comap 8th edition A scientific calculator is needed for some problems. (I will explain what this is ) This is a course for nonmath people who need to fulfill a general math requirement as part of their program requirements. It does not assume a math background. Even if you have been out of school for awhile and are a bit rusty or lacking in math skills, You can do well in this course if you attend class, spend time on the homework and put in the effort. We shall cover 4 or 5 major topics of math selected by the professor. You will be evaluated as follows: 2 exams 25% each. about 10 quizzes totaling 10% finalexam 40% The topics for spring 2011 will be from Graph theory, Scheduling, Fair division, Identification codes and possibly Apportionment. Believe me these sound more ominous than they are. I do not collect homework but all quizzes, exams and the final are based on homework problems, so you are strongly urged to do all homework. We shall spend ample time on those homeworkproblems we find tough. If the course is taught right and class shows interest in the topics, this can actually be a fun course. Fun is our objective; As well as to learn and appreciate a few math applications. Below is a list of homework problems for te course. this list is subject to change if I decide to add or delete problems: Section Page Problems 1.1,1.2 20 1-7 23 1-15 1.3 25 33,35,36,402.1 53 1-11 odd 54 1-11odd 2.2,2.3 58 36,38,39,40,41,44a) 2.4 60 50, 51, 52, 53a) 2.5 63 70, 71 3.1 89 1-9 odd 91 5, 6, 7, 14,16 3.3 94 29,31 13.1 425 1-11 427 1, 3 13.2 9, 11 13.3 13 13.4 17 13.5 To Be Announced 16.1 526 1-13 odd 16.2 527 1-13 odd 16.3 529 49, 56 17.1 17.2 To Be
