MATH 11 UPDATE
Textbook: Applied Finite Mathematics 2nd Edition, by R Sekhon.
Graphing Calculator Required: TI-83, 83+ or 84+ graphing calculator
are recommended for this class
You can rent a TI-83 at a low monthly cost at www.myti83.com
TI-86 is also acceptable but instructor will not demonstrate it in class.
Math 11 Syllabus
Math 11 Calendar
Math 11 Finite Mathematics is an introduction to a variety of mathematical
techniques that are used to model and solve problems in business.
Topics covered include linear models, matrices, linear programming, finance,
combinatorics, probability, Markov chains and game theory.
Students will use technology as appropriate, including the graphing calculator and Excel.
Which calculator is best to use?
The instructor will demonstrate
the TI-83, 83+, 84 in class.
These calculators will be the easiest to learn.
TI-86 is also acceptable, but the instructor will not demonstrate it.
The TI-89 is acceptable for use in Math 11 but the TI-89 is NOT recommended.
The instructor will not teach in class how to use a TI-89. It is harder to use and
you will need to be independent and responsible to learn how to use it on your own from your instruction manual.
The instructor has a program that we will use during the quarter that she
will download to student's TI 83, 83+, 84, 86 calculators and this program may not
be available for other calculator models.
Older models such as the TI-82 and 85 have some of the same functionality
as the TI-83,84,86, but may lack some of the required functions or operations.
The instructor can not help with calculators from other manufacturers,
which may not be able to do the work, and can not run any programs that will
be given to students using the TI-83, 83+, 84, 86.

Why do we know that an optimal solution will occur at a corner?
Why do we need to check the point (0,0)? Because it may be the optimal solution!

For this chapter you need to get the APIVOT program for your calculator from your instructor. Program IS available for TI-83, 84, 86
For other models of calculator, program may not be available - you were informed about this at start of quarter when TI-83, 84, 86 were listed as the acceptable calculators. Please see instructor if you are using a different TI calculator to see if there might be a program that may work on your calculator. For other brands of calculator, the instructor definitely does NOT have a version of the program for your calculator - borrow an acceptable calculator from a friend or the library or do the individual row operations to perform the pivots.
