MAT 240 FINITE MATHEMATICS (3 credits )
2002 Fall Semester
Dr. B. Zinn
Course Description
This course is designed to provide students with the ability, skill and confidence to use
mathematical models. Probability theory provides the logical basis for deciding among the
various interpretations of data. Matrix algebra merits attention not only because of the
existence of many important matrix models but also because it is an important tool in the
manipulation of linear systems. Linear programming is a mathematical procedure for solving
problems related to decision making and has a variety of useful applications.
