We are developing a Finite Math course and I have done quite a bit of
searching, looking at what other colleges have as a pre-req to this course.
It varies from Intermediate Algebra to College Algebra, and is split about
50-50. I am curious as to what your colleges pre-req is for this course and
the reasons behind that decision.

And, while I am sending this...for those of you that teach this course, what
is your favorite textbook? Do you require a graphing calculator?

WHY I LOVE NEW YORK (author unknown - but had to live in NY! :)
When it's Winter time in New York,
And the gentle breezes blow,
About seventy miles an hour
And it's fifty-two below.
You can tell you're in New York
'cause the snow's up to your butt,
And you take a breath of Winter air
And your nose holes both freeze shut.
The weather here is wonderful,
So I guess I'll hang around,
I could NEVER leave New York,
My feet are frozen to the ground.
