Description

This course satisfies the Quantitative Reasoning requirement of the Millikin Program of Student Learning (MPSL).  

This is a hybrid course.  As such, we will not meet 10 am through 4 pm every day.  The instructor will be available for questions through office hours and through email contact.  

Students will have access to course materials via Moodle.  In addition to quizzes to be completed on Moodle, students will take exams in person on campus.

Catalog description:  Analysis, description and solution of problems arising in business, computer science, and natural and social sciences. Emphasis on mathematical models whose construction and solution involve a finite number of clearly defined steps. Includes an introduction to finite probability and elementary statistics. Topics include matrices, systems of linear equations, linear inequalities, linear programming, functions and their graphs, Markov processes, and game theory. Additional topics may be selected from decision theory, mathematics of finance and networking. Prerequisite: ACT mathematics subscore of 22 or higher, a placement score of at least 3, or a pass in MA098.
