BMTH100 – Basic Math
This course is for students who need to upgrade their mathematical skills for quantitative courses in business courses in ASM. Students, who had been away from mathematical disciplines for several years, can take this course for refreshing their mathematical skills.
The review topics begin with the basic numeracy concepts in business and management: fractions, decimals, and percentages. Students will recap or learn to solve linear equations in algebra. Topics of exponents and logarithms are introduced, including solving simple exponential equations and logarithmic equations.
A chapter on statistics is also included for the preliminary study in business statistics: drawing and interpreting circle graphs, bar graphs and line graphs, and calculating the central measures of sets of data. Lastly, students will learn how to use technological tools (excel and calculators) to assist them in working on manipulating formulas and displaying the statistical graph.
