Course DescriptionThe course emphasizes how to apply various mathematical techniques in the support of managerial decisions in the various functional areas of business. It is subdivided into three major parts: part one covers the study of linear phenomena, including linear functions, matrices, systems of linear equations, linear inequalities, and linear programming; part two covers non-linear phenomena and focuses mainly on quadratic, exponential, and logarithmic functions; and part three examines probability concepts including uncertainties, conditional probability, and Bayes' formula.
Standard course outlines for Information Technology Management (CITM) courses are available on the ITM website.
This course is fully online and asynchronous, meaning you typically will not have to be online at specific times. You will engage in course-related activities through online tools such as announcements, discussions, and email. Your course learning will be based on weekly module content and activities that you can go through independently. Note: there are still deadlines for assignment submissions, and you may be expected to participate in discussion board interactions with your peers on a regular basis.
