# MATH 1324 - Finite Mathematics

***This is a course guideline. Students should contact instructor for the updated information on current course syllabus, textbooks, and course content***

*This course was formerly MATH 1313*

Section number: This information applies to ALL face-to-face sections

Delivery format: Hyflex/Online/face-to-face

Prerequisites:  A satisfactory score on a placement examination.

Course Description: Systems of linear equations, introduction to linear programming, mathematics of finance, topics in probability and statistics. *Note: Students with prior credit for MATH 2318 will not receive credit for MATH 1324. May not apply to course or GPA requirements for a major or minor in natural sciences and mathematics.

Core Category: Mathematics (20) and Math/Reasoning (90)

Textbook & Access Code: The textbook,online quizzes, and additional help materials will be made available by logging into CASA Campus Services (CCS) at https://ccs.casa.uh.edu/ . Students pay for access to CCS as part of their fee bill via CTAP. If one opts out of the CTAP, they can purchase an access code for this course at UH Bookstore. In this case, if the code is not entered by the deadline specified on CASA, students will lose access to CASA. No make ups will be given for assignments missed during the no-access period.

Upon successful completion of this course, students will:
• Apply elementary functions, including linear, quadratic, polynomial, rational, logarithmic, and exponential functions to solving real-world problems.
• Solve mathematics of finance problems, including the computation of interest, annuities, and amortization of loans.
• Apply basic matrix operations, including linear programming methods, to solve application problems.
• Demonstrate fundamental probability techniques and application of those techniques, including expected value, to solve problems.
• Apply matrix skills and probability analyses to model applications to solve real-world problems.
[Additional course curriculum details: The application of common algebraic functions, including polynomial, exponential, logarithmic, and rational, to problems in business, economics, and the social sciences are addressed. The applications include mathematics of finance, including simple and compound interest and annuities; systems of linear equations; matrices; linear programming; and probability, including expected value.]
