For some topics of the course we will be using the Notes for Mat331, Mathematical Problem Solving with Computers, by Santiago Simanca and Scott Sutherland, Summer 2002 edition. (http://www.mathlab.sunysb.edu/%7Escott/Book331/). In Blackboard you will find a more extensive bibliography. Exploring books is highly recomended!
The final grade will be based on the projects (60% of the grade), the homework problems (30% of the grade), and in-class participation (10% of the grade). There will be some “extra credit” problems. This means that without the extra credit, problems, perfect score will add to 100.
