Course Description: Satisfies Quantitative Reasoning Requirement in General Education Program. Mathematics of finance, combinatorics, probability, statistical measures of central tendency and dispersion, problem solving and mathematical reasoning
Text: Finite Mathematics, by Barnett, Ziegler, Byleen. Prentice Hall, Eleventh Edition.
Objectives: Upon completing MAT 105 the student should be able to:
Prerequisites: Students must have satisfied the ELM requirement before enrolling in MAT 105.
Grades: Grades will be based on four in‑class 60-minutes examinations (60% total), a comprehensive final examination (25%), and quizzes, homework, attendance and other assignments (15%) for the remainder.
The exact grading system for your section is the following:
Each of the four 60-minutes exams will be graded on a 100 scale, then the sum of the best three scores is divided by 5 and denoted by E.
Homework will be collected every class meeting, and each homework is worth 5 points. No late homework will be accepted. The average of all homework scores is denoted by H.
5 to 10 minutes quizzes will be given in principle every Tuesday, with the exception of the review and exam days, and will be graded in class on a scale from 1 to 5. The average of the quizzes scores is denoted by Q.
There are also 5 points awarded for attendance and class participation. This portion of the grade is denoted by A.
The final exam will be graded out of a maximum possible 200, then the score is divided by 8 and denoted by F.
To determine your final grade, compute E+H+Q+A+F. The maximum is 100, and the grade will be given by the rule:
A: 93‑100; A‑: 90‑92; B+: 87‑89; B: 83‑86; B‑: 80‑82
C+: 77‑79; C: 73‑76; NC: Less than 73.
Makeup: No makeup examinations or quizzes will be given. If you must miss an examination for a legitimate reason, discuss this, in advance, with me, and I may then substitute the relevant score from your final examination for the missing grade.
Accommodations for Students with Disabilities: Cal State Dominguez Hills adheres to all applicable federal, state, and local laws, regulations, and guidelines with respect to providing reasonable accommodations for students with temporary and permanent disabilities. If you have a disability that may adversely affect your work in this class, I encourage you to register with Disabled Student Services (DSS) and to talk with me about how I can best help you. All disclosures of disabilities will be kept strictly confidential. Please note: no accommodation may be made until you register with the DSS in WH B250. For information call (310) 243-3660 or to use telecommunications Device for the Deaf, call (310) 243-2028.
Academic Integrity: The mathematics department does not tolerate cheating. Students who have questions or concerns about academic integrity should ask their professors or the counselors in the Student Development Office, or refer to the University Catalog for more information. (Look in the index under "academic integrity".)
rules: Students must leave their CSUDH student ID on their desk for the
duration of the exam. Cell phones, iPhones, iPods, or PDAs of any kind, as
well as hea
