# QUANTITATIVE METHODS

**Textbook:
**I have chosen not to assign a required textbook for this course. However, if
you

feel that you need extra reference/practice, I will put together a packet with

examples that are already worked out.

**Course Description:
**The objective of this Quantitative Methods course is to review mathematical
concepts

in order to provide a better foundation before going into other courses such as Economics and

Management Science.

Since many topics must be covered in a short amount of
time, we will move quickly.

However, I encourage you to ask questions whenever necessary.

**Materials Needed:
**■ I recommend a 3-ring binder with dividers.

■ It will be very helpful to have a calculator. A scientific calculator will suffice (one

that has the buttons “sin”, “cos”, and “tan”).

■ You will also need some sheets of graph paper for some of the notes taken in class.

Depending upon your method of organization, you may want to use only graph

paper in your binder instead of ruled loose-leaf paper.

■ You may want to have a ruler on hand during class as we will be graphing many

straight lines.

■ You may also want to have a couple of different colored pencils or pens as we will

be graphing more than one line on the same graph and color coding is often helpful.

**Attendance:
**Because this course is a non-credit course at no cost to you, you may
consider

attendance to be less important. I do expect you to be in class every week. I understand that

circumstances do occur that prevent you from being in class. Please make every attempt to

contact me if you miss class or know you will need to miss class so that we can make

arrangements for homework assignments and handouts passed out during class. I will take

attendance into consideration when calculating your final grade.

**Grading:
**Your grade will be PASS/FAIL (70% or above is considered passing) and will
be

based on the following components.

Homework Assignments 20%

Midterm 35%

Final 45%

**Assignments:
**Homework assignments must be submitted individually. Study groups are
encouraged,

but all work must be shown and your work must be your own. Please do not put me in the

position of having to use the Heinz School’s cheating and plagiarism guidelines, which are

discussed more below.

Note:

Once I collect the assignment due each week, I will pass out a copy of

the answers and we will discuss the solutions together. Since it is

generally difficult to remember all of your solutions, you may want to jot

your answers down on a separate sheet of paper or make a photocopy of

your entire assignment before turning it in so that you can check your

answers.

**Cheating and Plagiarism:**

You are expected to adhere the Heinz School’s code of
ethics regarding cheating and

plagiarism. More specific information regarding these policies is located in the
MPM student

handbook.
