All absent students were sent an email about this.
The lab can not be posted on the website.
The instructor will send you a copy if you email before Tues 9pm.
Exam 2 Chapters 3 and 4 Linear Programming : FRIDAY 2/8
 This exam will have very few questions as they can be time consuming.
 5 questions
 2 problems to do the math to solve: one graphical linear program, one simplex method standard maximum linear program
 3 problems interpreting word problems into linear program mathematically (objective function and inequality constraints) and interpreting solutions to problems if given the final simplex tableau (but you do not do the graph or simplex to solve them).
 If you need practice problems for the Exam, try review sections 3.3 min and max problems
for graphical method and section 4.4 max problems for simplex method.
 Exam corresponds to chapter 3 homework and to chapter 4 homeworks 4A, 4B, 4C (but
NOT 4D)
(Because we did a lab for minimization by simplex, then we did not do DUALITY in chapter 4.3 so skip assignment 4D and the DUAL from 4D is not on this exam)

Section 6.6 and 6.7 Financial Calculations Review Document  review questions from section 6.6, 6.7 and answers
There will be some worksheets for Financial Mathematics
Worksheet #1 ANNUITY/LOAN FORMULA WORKSHEET is here  it is fast and worth 8 points.
DUE MONDAY 2/25.
 Print it out, and follow instructions on worksheet
 Worksheet #1 explores the process of finding accumulated or present value of an annuity step by step (similar to what we did in class on Tues at start of 6.3)
 Then you use the appropriate formula to verify that the formula duplicates the process
 Intended to take the "magic" out of the formula  now you have hands on practice to know what the formula does for you.
Worksheet #2 Amortization Schedule Worksheet was given out in class on 2/22: (10
points):
DUE FRIDAY 3/1
 Do the work on the worksheet and hand in the work on the worksheet.
 Instructions are on reverse side of the worksheet
 Section 6.5 also contains an example and explanation of amortization schedules
 This worksheet has individual data for each student, so it can not be posted online.
You need to see the instructor to get the worksheet.  Students may work together to figure out what types of calculations to do, etc, but you must each hand in your own worksheet with your own individualized data that you received from the instructor. Since all the worksheets have different data overall, you can not copy the numerical answers from somebody elses's worksheet  their answer will not be correct for your worksheet.
It is not certain yet if we are doing this worksheet or not this quarter.

 Instructor has office hours Monday morning and afternoon if you have questions and need help
 Statistics Tutors are the best source of help in the Tutorial Center S43, if you can not find a finite math tutor. Statistics tutors are familiar with a lot but maybe not all of the material in Chapters 7, 8, 9. Instructor is the best source of help if you can't find helpful tutors for this class in the tutorial center.

FINAL EXAM WEEK.
 No regular classes this week.
 All classes have final exams only.
 Check the college Final Exam schedule for exam day and time!
For Winter 2019, the final exam is Thursday 3/28 from 9:15 am  11:15 pm
 You need your calculator
 You are permitted 2 pages of notes, 2 sided, written in your own handwriting, for the final exam.
 The notes are collected with the final exam. Exam papers and notes are NOT returned to students. If you want to keep a copy of your exam notes, please photocopy them, scan them or take a picture BEFORE the final exam. See instructor during office hours during the following quarter if you want to see your final exam paper but you can not copy it or keep it  you can only look at it in the office.
Final Exam
Thus 3/28 : 9:15 a.m.  11:15 a.m.
Our final exam is EARLIER than our regular class time.
Plan your schedule accordingly to arrive on time for the final exam.
Otherwise you will NOT get the whole 2 hours for the final exam, if you arrive late.
 You are permitted 1 page of notes 2 sided for the final exam, notes must be handwritten in your own handwriting, not copied or downloaded from somewhere.
 You need your calculator for the final exam.
 The final exam is cumulative and covers all chapters.
For the topics in Ch 2 & 4 where matrix manipulations take more time, the final exam questions are shorter to do than questions on those topics on our midterm exam.
