A goal is to convey the power of mathematics as shown by a variety of problems which can be modeled and solved by quantitative means. Also included is an introduction to probability. Topics include data analysis, equations, systems of equations, inequalities, elementary linear programming, Venn diagrams, counting, basic probability, permutations, combinations, tree diagrams, standard normal and normal distributions. The mathematics of finance is covered. The course includes problem solving and decision making in economics, management, and social sciences.
