Introduction to Finite Mathematics Fall 2006 MTH107

The following calendar gives a timetable for the course. Your class may be slightly behind or ahead at any given time. Below the calendar is a list of sections in the textbook "Mathematics A Practical Odyssey" (fourth edition) by David B. Johnson & Thomas A Mowry, with suggested problems. Some of these may be done in class, others as homework. You should attempt them all. (Note: In the problem lists, a notation like 3-9 means that all the problems 3,4,5,6,7,8,9 are assigned.)
