See Angel for syllabus. The final grades will be given in the last class. Linear Algebra is a prerequisite. You have to know :
what is a linear equation,
what it means to solve it,
how to solve any system of linear equations.
This is needed for Linear Programming and will be tested. No division by 0 is tolerated .
office hours: MWF 3-4:30 p.m. 215 McAllister Bldg
Perpetual homework: read every section of the textbook before the corresponding class and do all exercises at the end of the section.

Use white paper and black pen and check the result before dropping if scaning.
Not all homework will be graded. Some tests could be given on-line.
