Join us for a special presentation at Mathfest of the MAA's fully electronic course Mathematics for Business Decisions, Parts 1 and 2. Jointly written by a mathematician and a professor of finance, these texts feature four interdisciplinary multimedia projects for lower division students in business and public administration. The six-hour presentation in Phoenix will provide time for participants to work through some of the major business projects on their own. This in-depth treatment will be of interest to teachers having no prior experience with Mathematics for Business Decisions as well as to those who have attended workshops on the material. The presentation will be particularly helpful to anyone who is teaching Business Mathematics, and who is interested in considering adoption of these new electronic texts in their classroom.
The projects involve: Loan Work Outs, Stock Option Pricing, Marketing Computer Drives, and Bidding on an Oil Lease. The two-course sequence, including probability, simulation, calculus, and optimization, is designed to replace the traditional combination of finite mathematics and brief calculus. Materials will be demonstrated, and a discussion will follow, of the challenges and rewards of teaching the program.. Plenty of time will be allowed for hands-on computer experimentation with the texts. All participants will take away materials they can bring back to their institutions for further review and discussion.
