MAT-1190 Quantitative Business Analysis

This is an applications-based course that continues with the mathematical inquiry that began in high school and intermediate algebra. The course prepares students for further study in business, finance, and management science. The underlying teaching philosophy is that students who study mathematics should develop alternate means of critical thinking and apply those means to the applications in the everyday business world. To this end, active participation is fostered by means of a variety of assignments. This course provides the student with sophisticated computational skills while stressing the ability to think critically and objectively. These computational and thinking skills will be applied to a wide variety of business applications. Students are encouraged to explore and solve realistic applications in business, finance, and management science.

Advisory: It is advisable to have knowledge in a course equivalent to MAT-1150: Intermediate Algebra with a grade of C or better to succeed in this course.
