MAT-119 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 will develop an integrated understanding of functions as well as the solutions and applications of linear, quadratic, exponential and logarithmic equations. The theory and graphing of inequalities will also be developed as will linear systems and the fundamentals of matrices. To prepare students for further study in business, finance and management science, the mathematical concepts will then be applied to such business applications as interest, discount and amortization as well as maximization and minimization problems.
Advisory: it is advisable to have knowledge in a course equivalent to MAT-115 Intermediate Algebra with a grade of C or better to succeed in this course. Students are responsible for ensuring that they have the required knowledge. Students are permitted to have scientific (nongraphing) calculators in examinations, but programmable calculators are not permitted. Students are only permitted to take one of the following courses: MAT-119, MAT-121 or MAT- 129. BSBA and ASBA students are recommended to take MAT-119 or MAT-129.
