MA 151 Mathematical Methods for Business

This course uses Excel to apply mathematical analyses for data that reflect realistic business scenarios. Students will develop a deep understanding of linear models, including systems of linear equations and systems of linear inequalities. They will also be able to recognize, manipulate, and perform analyses involving polynomial and exponential functions. The course covers introductory probability, expected value, and regression. The mathematical concepts are applied to problems in break-even analysis, optimization, and decision analysis, with an eye to risk and sensitivity in model outcomes. Prerequisite: complete university's directed self placement process or a grade of C or better in MA 095. Liberal Arts Core/University Requirements Designation: MT. (3)
