Educational Philosophy: This is an interactive course based on lectures, readings and working exercises to develop problem solving skills. Learning is not a passive activity. The Instructor provides guidance such as lectures, assignment and tutoring but learning is placed entirely on the student's shoulders. The intent of the course it so introduce the student to the mathematical skills and knowledge necessary to employ algebraic analysis and techniques to solve advanced quantitative problems compatible with the skill levels of this class. Students are expected to read the sections of the book scheduled to be taught in class prior to that class meeting. The instructor reserves the right to quiz the student on that night's material before the material is reviewed in class to ascertain if students are preparing for class.
