This course is designed to provide the student with a practical knowledge of typical mathematical concepts and calculations performed in the business environment. Emphasis is placed upon the introduction and understanding of mathematical concepts as applied in various business situations, formation and execution of applicable calculations, problem solving, and interpretation of results in reaching appropriate business decisions. This basic application of business concepts is extended to more complex decision-making with multiple variables and complex algebraic functions as they apply to business decisions. Utilization of graphing and modeling will help students improve their decision making ability in the ever changing and complex business environment. Problem solving will involve the integration and the use of a calculator.
