Course Number: 91-600
The objective of the Quantitative Methods I course is to review mathematical concepts, concentrating primarily on algebra and some geometry so as to prepare candidates with an improved, practice-based, applicable understanding of such concepts before applying them within the economics course that is required as part of their program’s academic core.
Upon completion of this course, the candidate will be able to:
1. Explain mathematical operations and linear equations
2. Express functions as algebraic and graphical problems
3. Discuss the applications of linear equations, systems of linear equations, and parallel and perpendicular lines
4. Solve systems of equations (using graphic, substitution, and elimination methods)
These objectives will be assessed via the final examination.
