Finite Mathematics

This is a general course for students who are majoring in business, management, economics, or the life or social sciences. It is assumed that a student has taken at least two semesters of high school algebra. I will be teaching this course with R and Python as a part of our Jonglei Institute of Science & Technology (JIST) online program.
