Instructors & Lectures: First Math 121 lecture: Fri, 7 Sept 2012. Last lecture: Wed, 5 Dec 2012. Section 01: Prof. Murray R. Bremner, 206 McLean Hall. E-mail: bremner@math.usask.ca Lectures: Monday, Wednesday, Friday: 8.30am to 9.20am. Room: ARTS 143 Section 03: Prof. Artur Sowa, 225 McLean Hall. E-mail: sowa@math.usask.ca Lectures: Monday, Wednesday, Friday: 1.30pm to 2.20pm. Room: ARTS 143

Coordinator: Dr. Lawrence Chang, 236 McLean Hall. E-mail: chang@math.usask.ca Office hours: Please e-mail your instructor or the coordinator to make an appointment at a mutually convenient time. You should e-mail him a day or two in advance and not at the last minute. Lab Schedules: Every student is required to register in either one of the following 4 labs. 1. L01: Thursday, 2.30pm to 3.50pm. Room: ARTS 133 2. L03: Thursday, 4.00pm to 5.20pm. Room: ARTS 133 3. L05: Thursday, 2.30pm to 3.50pm. Room: THORV 271 4. L07: Thursday, 4.00pm to 5.20pm. Room: ARTS 134 First lab: Thursday 13 Sept 2012. Last lab: Thursday 29 November 2012. The lab periods will be devoted to midterm tests and to discussing homework problems. The lab is an essential part of this course. Previous terms have shown that students who skip labs tend not to do well and have a high chance of failing this course. Therefore, you are strongly advised to attend labs. Textbook: Mathematical Analysis for Business and Economics by Schelin and Bange. Customised copies are available in the U. of S. Bookstore. This course will cover Chapters 1 to 6 and part of Chapter 7. Website: To access the course website, go to https://bblearn.usask.ca and log in using your NSID and password. In the blackboard MATH 121 container you will find basic information about your course, the instructors and the labs. Announcements and solutions to tests will be posted on blackboard. Evaluation: There will be two components in your performance evaluation: • There will be 5 midterm tests to be written during lab times and in the lab rooms on: (1) 20 Sept 2012, (2) 4 Oct 2012, (3) 25 Oct 2012, (4) 8 Nov 2012, and (5) 29 Nov 2012 The best 4 of the 5 tests will contribute 40% of the overall grade. You will write the test in the lab room and during the lab time that you have registered for. Important: Do NOT write the test in another lab time slot or another lab room as doing so WILL result in your mark not being entered. • Final examination which will contribute 60% of your overall grade. The time, date and place will be announced later. Note: No books or notes will be allowed on the midterm tests and on the final exam. Calculators will be allowed, but not graphing calculators. Absence Policy: Since we will be considering the best four of your five midterm tests marks, your overall grade will be jeopardised if you do not write at least four midterm tests. Should you miss two or more midterm tests, you must provide verifiable documents, e.g. doctors’ notes, coaches’ letters, etc., for absence approval for ALL the midterm tests that you missed. Subject to approval, the weight of the missed midterm test(s) may be transferred to the final examination.

For example, if you miss two midterm tests and you provide documents for both missed tests, then your midterm tests component will be worth 30% and your final examination will be worth 70%. However, if you miss two midterm tests and you provide a document for only one of the missed tests, then your midterm tests component will be worth 30% but your final examination will still be worth only 60%. If you miss only one midterm test, there is no need to provide any document. Your midterm tests component will still be worth 40% and the final examination will still be worth 60%. Homework: Problems from each section of the text are attached to this course outline. These problems are not to be handed in. Solutions will be discussed during labs. It is very important for you to spend time every week solving these problems. The questions on the tests and the final exam will be very similar to the suggested homework problems. Math Help Centre: The Math Help Centre is part of the University Learning Centre in Room 144 of the Murray Building (Main Library). Its hours of operation will be posted on its website http://www.usask.ca/ulc/academic-help/math-stats-help.

...MATHEMATICS IN INDIA The history of maths in india is very great & eventful.Indians gave the system of numerals, zero, geometry & equations to the world. The great Indian mathematician Aryabhata (476-529) wrote the Aryabhatiya ─ a volume of 121 verses. Apart from discussing astronomy, he laid down procedures of arithmetic, geometry, algebra and trigonometry. He calculated the value of Pi at 3.1416 and covered subjects like numerical squares and cube roots. Aryabhata is credited with the emergence of trigonometry through sine functions. Around the beginning of the fifteenth century Madhava (1350-1425) developed his own system of calculus based on his knowledge of trigonometry. He was an untutored mathematician from Kerala, and preceded Newton and Liebnitz by a century. The twentieth-century genius Srinivas Ramanujan (1887-1920) developed a formula for partitioning any natural number, expressing an integer as the sum of squares, cubes, or higher power of a few integers. Origin of Zero and the Decimal System The zero was known to the ancient Indians and most probably the knowledge of it spread from India to other cultures. Brahmagupta (598-668),who had worked on mathematics and astronomy, was the head of the astronomy observatory in Ujjain, which was at that point of time, the foremost mathematical centre in India; he and Bhaskar the second (1114-1185), who reached understanding on the number systems and solving equations, have together provided many rules for......

...Janel Adrianne D. Dihiansan TH 121 – DD Ms. Puen November 27, 2013 Revelation in Our Midst In general, God reveals Himself through His creations. It is God’s self-communication, which is accessed in faith through grace. It is a gift. It is directed to the entire human race, and it is a matter of how we receive His message and interpret it in our own ways. The truths revealed may be inaccessible to the human mind – mysteries, even when revealed; the intellect of an ordinary man is incapable of fully penetrating. God reveals Himself in word and in deed. The essence of revelation lies in the fact that it is the direct speech of God to His people. Revelation does not stop even if someone else is delivering the message of God. The best example for this is Jesus Christ. Jesus was sent to us by His Father to proclaim His words and wisdom. He is the sole and universal mediator between God and all of humanity. Jesus is both human and divine. He is divine in the sense that He is the Incarnate Son of God. He is human in the sense that He walked this very earth and preached His Father’s teachings in a language understandable to all. Honestly, I do not have a very strong faith in God. Yes, I believe in Him and His teachings; I believe they are right and just. But if I actually think about it more realistically, is God really controlling every thing that is happening around us? Is He always in the “behind the scenes” part of our lives and our decision making......

...MATH 102 – College Algebra FACTORING polynomials Factoring polynomials is simply the reverse process of the special product formulas. Thus, the reverse process of special product formulas will be used to factor polynomials. To factor polynomials will mean to express it as a product of positive integral powers of distinct prime factors. TYPES OF FACTORING Type 1. Common Monomial Factor Examples: 3x2 (4 – 3x) 1. 12x2 – 9x3 = 2. -10a6b5 – 15a4b6 – 20a3b4 Solution: The common factor of -10, -15 and -20 is -5; For a6, a4, a3, the common factor is a3 For b5, b6 and b4, the common factor is b4 Therefore, the common monomial factor of the given polynomial is -5a3b4 After getting the common monomial factor, divide the given polynomial by this to get the other factor. -10a6b5 – 15a4b6 – 20a3b4 = -5a3b4(2a3b + 3ab6 + 4) ax + ay = a(x + y) Type 2. Difference of Two Squares The difference of two squares is equal to the product of the sum and difference of the square roots of the terms. x – y = (x + y) (x – y) 2 2 Examples: 1. x 2 − 9 = x 2 − 9 x 2 + 9 = (x - 3) (x + 3) 2. 16x4 – 81y4 = (4x2)2 – (9y2)2 = (4x2 – 9y2) (4x2 + 9y2) = (2x – 3y) (2x – 3y) (4x2 + 9y2) 3. –ax2 + 9a = -a (x2 – 9) = -a (x – 3)(x + 3) Type 3. Perfect Square Trinomial The square of any binomial is a perfect square trinomial where the first and the last terms are the square of the first and square of last term of the binomial and the other term is a plus (or minus)......

... Torry Dulaney University of Phoenix Reasoning for Business 2 Quantitative Reasoning for Business Upon first glance at the Quantitative Reasoning for Business Overview, I was initially like a deer caught in headlights. What did I sign up for? But after research, I found out that my reaction was not unusual for nonmathematical majors. If you haven’t noticed yet math was not one of my favorite courses. However, upon further review the QRB is essential in preparing for future courses in economics, finance, accounting, operations and research. QRB focuses on practical applications of mathematics, in college, career and life. The QRB topics include, for example, income taxes, statistical reasoning, mathematics, voting theory, and exponential growth. Using and understanding the QRB will assist me in being successful in math in the rapidly changing workforce. The QRB should improve my critical thinking and problem solving skills. It also should prepare me to identify and intelligently face problems that I may encounter in my daily life that require quantitative reasoning. “With quantitative reasoning skills, one can integrate deductive logic aspects from multiple knowledge dimensions into program evaluation and research” (Patton, 1990). With quantitative analysis, it is especially important to understand the units of......

...ENGLISH 121 Paper #2 Higher Education Submitted by Kenneth Jones Paper submitted to Professor: David Bushelle KENNETH JONES PROFESSOR: DAVID BUSHELLE ENGLISH 121 HIGHER EDUCATION Should a High School Graduate seek a higher education? If so what kind or type, for some years now it has been a lot of controversy on why should every high school graduate go to a college or university. What about trade school or apprenticeships at a company.
