    Introduction
    This subject provides students with the opportunity to bring their Quantitative Mathematics skills up to a standard that is required for future Business subjects at Bond University. It also provides new material that is essential to the understanding of business-related problems. Topics that are covered in this subject include: factorisation of expressions; solving equations (linear, quadratic and exponential) and inequations; properties of functions (including straight line, quadratic, exponential and logarithmic); vector and matrix algebra.

     
    Learning Objectives
    1. Recognise and manipulate a variety of algebraic expressions.
    2. Solve simple and complex algebraic equations including: linear, quadratic, exponential and logarithmic types.
    3. Interpret and solve word-problems related to linear, quadratic, exponential and logarithmic models.
    4. Understand and appreciate the need to solve a variety of elementary business and scientific problems via systematic processes using standard mathematical techniques.
    5. Interpret solutions in the context of the problem.
