Course description: This course introduces you to various topics that demonstrate fundamental mathematical ideas and concepts needed to analyze real-world problems. Topics to be covered include linear programming, financial mathematics, probability, and statistics. Upon successful completion of this course, you should be able to set up basic mathematical models and solve them using appropriate tools in the context of real-world problems.

Course structure: The course is divided into 10 or 11 modules, where each module consists of a synchronous (live) session on Zoom and asynchronous learning materials that you work on at your convenience. More precisely, each module is comprised of:

1. pre-recorded videos to be posted on the Blackboard course site and associated pre-homework (pre-HW) that you complete on MyLab Math prior to a live session.

2. the live session (either Monday or Thursday) for group discussions of advanced materials.

3. post-homework (post-HW) that you complete on MyLabMath and written-homework (written-HW) that you work on based on the live session.
