Mathematical Foundations of Business Analysis (Math110) Fall, 2011 Instructor: Nancy Beausoleil; Ballentine Room 236 Office Hours M,W 11 – 12; MWF 7:30-8am Email: [email protected]; Text: Tan, Applied Mathematics (Fifth Edition) Calculator: A scientific calculator is required Grading: Your grade will be based on exams in class, a comprehensive final exam and assignments, homework and quizzes about which you will be informed in class. Exams 300 points Quizzes 100 points Homework 60 points Final Exam 140 points Students with a disability (documented through Disability Services for Students, 330 Memorial Union) should see me as soon as possible to work out reasonable accommodations. Exams: I will announce the exam dates throughout the semester. If you are unable to take the exam at the announced time/day, you must notify me by email or in person before the exam is given. Failure to take an exam at the announced day/time without prior notification will result in the revocation of the privilege of a make-up exam. Quizzes: I will generally quiz you each week and announce to you what material will be covered. Quizzes cannot be made up…ever! During the semester, you will be given one opportunity to replace a missed quiz or replace a poor quiz grade. Homework: Four (4) times during the semester, I will check to see if you have done the homework problems assigned from the previous class. For each presentation of homework, I will give you 15 points if you have completed the assignment; if you have not, you will receive 0 points. Homework must be done in a notebook and be brought to class every day. If I call on you to check homework and you do not have it with you, you will receive a grade of 0. If you are absent, I will attempt 3 times to check your homework. After 3 attempts, you will receive a grade of 0 for that attempt. Please note: At the end of the regular semester (before the final exam, with all other work complete), any student whose exam and quiz grades total 425 points or more will be exempt from the cumulative final exam.Grades: Please remember that grades are not negotiable and no extra credit is offered on an individual basis. Grades are based on points accumulated, not on averages. Letter grades will be assigned using the following conversion scale: Letter Grade Points Letter Grade Points A 558-600 C+ 462-479 A- 540-557 C 438-461 B+ 522-539 C- 420-437 B 498-521 D+ 402-419 B- 480-497 D 360-401 359 accumulated points or less is an F. General Information GOALS OF THIS COURSE: The goal of MTH 110 is to prepare you for further courses in mathematical analysis for business, especially BUS 111. This course does NOT satisfy general education requirements since it is expected that you will take a subsequent course that does. EXPECTATIONS: I expect that you will give this course 6-7 hours per week, in addition to class time. This is an approximate figure of course, but don't assume that you can spend less time than this and still get a grade you'll like. ADVICE: The key to success in this course is the homework material. It is very important that you try all the assigned problems. The problems assigned for each textbook section indicate what I feel is important in that section and which ideas and skills you should focus on. If you want to learn the material in this course, you will do the homework. However, I will always begin class by answering all questions pertaining to homework attempted! An important part of this course is strengthening your algebra skills and using them in new ways. Be prepared to review basic algebra as needed. This course also has a body of mathematical facts that you will have to learn. Be prepared to memorize some formulas and theorems as you learn about their meaning and uses. THE ACADEMIC ENHANCEMENT CENTER: The work in this course can be difficult. You can seek help at the Academic Enhancement Center (AEC) in Roosevelt Hall. AEC tutors can answer questions, clarify concepts, check your understanding, and help you to study. You can make an appointment or walk in anytime Mon-Thur 10 AM to 10 PM, Fri 10 AM to 1 PM, Sun 4 PM - 8 PM. For a complete schedule go to www.uri.edu/aec, call (401) 874-2367, or stop by the fourth floor in Roosevelt Hall.Course Content Section Topic Homework 1.1 Real Numbers 1-10, 17,19,21,27 1.2 Polynomials 1-11 odd, 23-33odd, 41-45odd, 57, 1.3 Factoring 1-9odd, 11-33 odd 1.4 Rational Expressions 1-9,13-35,39,41 1.5 Integer Exponents 1-41odd, 49,51 1.6 Solving Equations 1-9odd, 13-17odd 21-33odd, 39-43odd 1.7 Rational Exponents/Radicals 1-39odd 1.8 Quadratic Equations, 1-7odd,11-15odd, 27-31odd 1.9 Inequalities 11,13,15,57, WS TEST 1 2.1 Coordinates 7-12,13,15,17,21-28 2.2 Equations of Lines 1-6,11-27odd,41,43,45 61,63
