TOPICS TO BE COVERED:
the course is optimization — how to maximize or minimize a function
to certain constraints.
Most of the course is a discussion of calculus and its applications; matrix theory and its applications are also
discussed. The emphasis will be on techniques and on applications to business and management problems.
AS/SC/MATH 1515 3.0 (may also be taken as a first-term Corequisite) or
or 12U Advanced Functions and Introductory Calculus or equivalent.

4 ) You are expected to do all of the
Universal Math Theorem:
The grade you receive will be proportional to the amount of time you spend doing problems.
EXAMS: There will be four midterm tests and the final exam.
Thursday, October 4; Tuesdays, November 13, January
22, March 4.
Marks: Each of the three tests (Oct.4, Jan.22, Mar. 4 ) 15%; the test ( Nov.13) 20%; Final exam 35%.
MISSED EXAMS: There will be no
exams for missed tests. Upon presentation of
documentation of a valid excuse, the corresponding percentage of the final mark will be added
to the final exam. With no presentation of such documentation a grade of zero will be entered
for the missed tests.
Drop deadline: February 1, 2008.
