Textbook: Harshbarger and Reynolds, Mathematical Applications for the Management, Life, and Social Sciences, 10th Ed., Brooks Cole (2012)  ISBN10: 9781133106234  ISBN13: 9781133106234  Edition: 10
Homework: Problems assigned from the textbook are listed on the syllabus. Any changes or additional assignments will be announced in class. Answers to oddnumbered exercises are in the back of the book. I highly recommend working jointly on homework problems with fellow students.
Webwork: Webwork is a free online system that provides individualized homework problems, gives immediate feedback, and allows you to correct mistakes until the due date. Webwork is required in this course, and it is a major part of your grade. Some homework problems in your textbook have matching Webwork problems, which must be submitted online. Webwork website
Exams: There will be three inclass exams, Exam 1 on Wednesday, October 8, Exam 2 on Monday, November 3, and Exam 3 on Wednesday, November 26.
Grading: The course grade will be determined as follows (subject to change announced in class): 18% Webwork and quizzes + 54% Exams (18% each exam) + 28% Final Exam. The single lowest inclass exam score will be replaced by the final exam score if that improves your total score. Without exception, you must pass the exams to pass this course, and you must take the final exam at the time scheduled by the university.
Help: My office hours are on Mondays and Wednesdays 1112:15pm in my office, 1S209. Free math tutoring is available.
How to Study: (1.) Come to class (attendance is mandatory). (2.) Read the relevant sections after class. (3.) Do the homework. Leave time to think about it! (4.) Come to my office hours or the help room with any remaining questions. (5.) To study for a math exam, you must DO MORE PROBLEMS from past exams, homework and textbook.
