Math 124: Finite Mathematics


This course introduces and explores various areas in finite mathematics including systems of linear equations, matrices, input-output analysis, maximizing or minimizing linear functions of two or more variables subject to linear inequality constraints, sophisticated counting, mathematical probability and the mathematics of finance. Students will experience how these mathematical techniques can be used in business applications. Students learn how to think critically and analytically. This is accomplished by taking real world problems and converting them into mathematical problems, which can be solved using the techniques learned.
