Departmental Syllabus for Finite Mathematics
Instructor Contact Information: This information is
section specific and will be given
here in the copy given to each student on the first day of classes.
Course Description: For students not planning to major in the physical
sciences, engineering, mathematics, or
computer science. Simple interest, compound interest, and annuities, linear
systems and matrices, game theory,
and optimization. Prereq: satisfactory placement test score, or pass M119 or
M130. Prerequisite requirements
are strictly enforced. Students not meeting these requirements will be dropped
from the class. No student who
has received credit for M141 or M152 with a grade of C or better may
subsequently receive credit for M125.
Students who receive a grade of C or better in Math 125 may not subsequently
receive credit for M119. (QR)
3 credit hours.
Text: Finite Mathematics, by Waner and Costenoble, Custom 4^{th}
Edition, Brooks Cole Publishers.
Required Companion Website: Enhanced WebAssign: Use the “passkey” that
came with your new textbook
and the instructions provided by your instructor.
Calculator: A graphing calculator is required for this course. The Math
Department highly recommends and
provides support for the TI-83+ and TI-84+ models. The PIVOT program is required
and can be downloaded to
your calculator by the Math Tutorial Center staff. While other calculators may
be used with your instructor’s
permission, instructors and tutorial center staff may not be able to provide
help on how to use them. Use of cell
phone calculators and calculators with advanced alpha-numeric capabilities, such
as the TI-89, is forbidden in
this course.
Grades: Grades will be determined using the grading scale below. Your
letter grade is a measure of your
mastery of course material and your fulfillment of course objectives. You should
keep all of your graded work
until final grades are posted. The quizzes and other category may contain other
material to be specified by the
individual instructor on their individual syllabus.
Grading Scale:
4 Tests for total of | 60% |
WebAssign Homework | 5% |
Quizzes and Other | 15% |
Cumulative Final Exam | 20% |
Total Possible | 100% |
Final Exam: The comprehensive final exam date and
time will be stated on the individual instructor’s
syllabus. You need to plan ahead for the date and time of your final exam
especially regarding travel
arrangements. There is not a common final for this course. Every instructor
writes the final for their class.
All students are required to take the final exam. Students who miss the
final
without securing permission ahead of time will fail the course.
Attendance & Make-up Policy: This will be clearly
stated on the individual instructor’s syllabus.
Disability Services: If you need course adaptations or accommodations
because of a documented disability or
if you have emergency information to share, please contact the Office of
Disability Services at 2227 Dunford
Hall at 974-6087.
Math Tutorial Center: The Math Tutorial Center is in rooms 101 and 109 in
Temple Court. It provides free
tutoring. Please make use of this free service.

Classroom Etiquette: Please be considerate of the
instructor and those around you. Come to class on time
and stay the entire period. Turn off cell phones and beepers during class. Do
not talk to classmates at
inappropriate times. Refrain from reading newspapers or working on other
coursework during class.
Academic Standards of Conduct:
All students are expected to abide by the University Honor Statement. In
mathematics classes, violations of
the honor statement include copying another person's work on any graded
assignment or test, collaborating on a
graded assignment without the instructor's approval, using unauthorized "cheat
sheets" or technical devices
such as calculators, cell phones or computers for graded tests or assignments,
or other infractions listed in
"Hilltopics". These violations are serious offenses, subject to disciplinary
action that may include failure in a
course and/or dismissal from the University. The instructor has full authority
to suspend a student from his/her
class, to assign an "F" in an exercise or examination, or to assign an "F" in
the course. See "Hilltopics" for
more complete information. A report of all offenses will be sent to appropriate
deans and the Office Student
Judicial Affairs for possible further action.
The Honor Statement
An essential feature of the University of Tennessee is a commitment to
maintaining an
atmosphere of intellectual integrity and academic honesty. As a student of the
University,
I pledge that I will neither knowingly give nor receive any inappropriate
assistance in
academic work, thus affirming my own personal commitment to honor and integrity.
The following schedule is tentative. Each instructor has
the option to vary dates and assignments as
they see fit. All skills taught and tested through Test 2 are to be done by
hand. Calculators may
be used for dealing with decimals and fractions in certain applications but not
on tests. Emphasis
should be on Applications and Communication and Reasoning Exercises. The use of
the built-in
financial applications in the calculators is strongly encouraged so focus
is on understanding of more
complex financial concepts and their relevance to real life.
