Number: | MS120 |

Name: | Foundations of Quantitative Analysis: Mathematics, Research, |

Description: | This project based course asks students to review fractions, percentages, decimals, word problems, linear functions (creating, graphing, and interpreting) and other mathematical concepts typically encountered in everyday life. Students will also apply basic concepts of algebra in the context of spreadsheet modeling. Most problems will require students to obtain real data from Internet sources and to use that data to address real applied problems. Students will use Excel 2007 as the primary vehicle of analysis with students verifying some elements of their solutions using hand calculations and others using alternative spreadsheet models. Students will be expected to create and deliver presentations of their work using PowerPoint 2007. |
