QABE deals with the fundamentals of mathematics for business and economics. It replaces the old course Quantitative Methods A, and re±ects our goal of continual course improvement. For those of you who have studied QMA in the past, there are similarities but also di²erences between the two courses. You may be wondering if all the material taught in QABE will be applicable to you. The short answer is that all of it will be applicable, but not always immediately. That is, the course material has been chosen to re±ect the core mathematical skills that you will need for further study in the quantitative courses, particularly those taught by the School of Economics. We have students studying marketing and hospitality, through to economics and econometrics. The spectrum of disciplines requires a range of mathemat- ical tools. For this reason, we will try to point to applications of our mathematics for your further studies wherever possible, drawing on business and economic scenarios and problems to bring out the relevance of the techniques we’ll be learning. Finally, so that we can keep this course improving all the time, we’d appreciate your feedback. So if you have an idea for an improvement, please send an email to the lecturer-in-charge to let us know. All the best with your studies. We hope that you enjoy the course! Agenda 1. Introductions; 1
