Mathematical Foundations for Business Analysis, Spring 2013 MTH110

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 "Applied Mathematics'' by Soo T. Tan, Brooks Cole; 5th edition, 2008. ISBN-10: 0495559679; ISBN-13: 978-0495559672

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.)
