AS/AK/ MATH 1550 6.0

Mathematics with Management Applications

      This course is designed to provide a mathematical background for students in the BBA programme. It is also suitable for the Ordinary Programme in Mathematics for Commerce, but should not be taken by those who intend to major in any other programme in Mathematics or Statistics or in Computer Science. It includes calculus, matrix algebra and elements of optimization with applications to management.
      This course is designed primarily for students interested in business programmes. It satisfies a requirement for entry to the BBA programme in the Schulich School of Business.
      One theme of the course is optimization -- how to maximize or minimize a function subject to certain constraints. Most of the course is a discussion of calculus and its applications; matrix theory and its applications are also discussed. The emphasis will be on techniques and on applications to business and management problems. The content of this course is very similar to that of the two courses MATH 1530 3.0 and MATH 1540 3.0. These courses will also satisfy the requirements for the programmes mentioned above, and they are suitable for those who plan to major in economics.
      Those who wish a stronger foundation in calculus, or who wish to major in any Mathematics programme other than those mentioned above, should avoid calculus courses with second digit 5.
      The text will be Haeussler and Paul, Introductory Mathematical Analysis (latest ed.), Prentice-Hall.
      The method for determining the final grade has not yet been decided.
