MATH 215 Finite Mathematics for Information 3 credits
Sciences
This course focuses on the area of mathematics of particular use in the information sciences. The basic linear algebra of matrices used for solutions of large scale systems of linear equations is treated. Applications of matrices such as Leontieff models of multisector economics and the basics of the simples method for solving linear economic optimization problems are discussed. Fundamental concepts of probability including basic combinatorial methods for probabilistic computations are studied. An introduction is given to decision theory. This treatment is in the context of Bayesian or statistical decision theory, though game theoretic versions may be discussed. Possible optional topics may include elementary Markov chains or the matrix algebra of spreadsheet operations. This course is intended for IS majors only. Prerequisite: MATH 141, 151, 155 or 380.
