MTH 110 - Finite Mathematics

3 credits

Prerequisite(s): High school Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II with an appropriate mathematics placement score, or a grade of C or higher in MTH 100 
This course is intended to give an overview of topics in finite mathematics together with their applications and is taken primarily by students who are not majoring in science, engineering, commerce, or mathematics (i.e., students who are not required to take Calculus). This course will draw on and significantly enhance the student’s arithmetic and algebraic skills. The course includes sets, counting, permutations, combinations, basic probability (including Baye’s Theorem), and introduction to statistics (including work with Binomial Distributions and Normal Distributions), matrices, and their applications to Markov chains and decision theory. Additional topics may include symbolic logic, linear models, linear programming, the simplex method, and applications. A scientific calculator is required. Required computer component based on textbook.
