Instructor: Dr. Abdellatif Bourhim, 313J Carnegie, 443-2549, [email protected] Office Hours:Tuesday and Thursday: 11:00 12:10 Course Supervisor: Prof. Vincent Fatica Mathematical Prerequisites and Restrictions: MAT 121 has no formal prerequisites;however, it is desirable that students have a reasonable level of competence in high school algebra. MAT 121 is a prerequisite for MAT 122. A student cannot receive creditfor MAT 121 after completing STT 101 or any MAT course numbered above 180 with a grade of C or better. MAT 121 and the Liberal Arts Core: The sequence MAT 121 MAT 122 can be used to satisfy the quantitative skills requirement of the liberal arts core in the College of Arts and Sciences. Texts: Elementary Statistics with Finite Mathematics, Fourth Custom Edition for SyracuseUniversity, Math 121 & 122, and the Minitab Manual that goes with the 12th edition of Elementary Statistics by Mario F. Triola. Computer Labs: When you registered for this course you should have also registered fora recitation section that goes with it. All the scheduled recitations will meet; attendance is required. The ones during the first week of classes (8/29 9/2) will be introductory; no work will be submitted. After that, for 12 recitations (Tue, 9/6 to Mon, 12/5), there will be computer lab assignments to be done, handed in, and graded. All twelve computerlabs will count toward your grade. Bring your textbook, laboratory manual, and calculator to these recitations. The recitation instructors will have office hours (times and places to be announced) during which labs missed for an acceptable reason can be made up. The recitation instructors are not required to allow making up labs that are more than one week outstanding. Homework: Homework is for your practice. No homework will be collected. Page 5 of the syllabus contains suggested problems for each section. It is also a good idea to try the statistical literacy and critical thinking, chapter quick quiz, and review exercises at the end of each chapter. Exams: You should bring your textbook (not the lab manual) and calculator to each exam (including the final). You will be allowed to use your textbook (not the lab manual) and calculator during the exam, but will not be allowed to use any notes other than what you write in, or attach modestly to, your textbook.
