Course Overview:
Math 110 is a difficult course that provides business students with a good sense of their aptitude for the math problems will encounter throughout college, and in their careers. 110 is known by students as a "weed-out" course, meaning that it is a difficult course that filters out students who are unable to pass from being enrolled in the business school. Your grade in this course will be heavily determined by your exam scores. There are two midterms and a final. Out of 450 total points for the semester, 350 points - 100, 100, and 150 respectively - are reserved for your exam scores. The other 100 points are a combination of attendance-based clicker points, and homework credit. To be successful in Math 110, you will need to be self directed and must stay on top of course work. You could be learning about finding critical points one day, and integrals the next.
Course highlights:
Derivatives, critical points, graphing, and integrals are all covered in this course. A variety of business related equations are touched upon. You get the sense that this course would be most helpful to actuarial, accounting, and finance majors.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Going to class is absolutely crucial for this course. You will be completely lost if you miss class. When doing online "WebAssign" homework, actually understand the questions you are given, rather than figuring answers by means of online calculators and equation computers. You will thank yourself later.
