Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I liked the course. If you are in or applying to the business school then I would definitely recommend the course being as it is mandatory. However, if not, then I would not recommend it because I don't see why you would need to take it. It's not a bad course though, I actually found it pretty interesting. The course starts from the back and then goes forward, so we end on chapter 1 instead of beginning with it. There are also webassigns due every week.
Course highlights:
The highlights of this course were the material we learned for the second midterm. I found that so much easier to learn than what we did in preparation for the first midterm. I learned how to do combinations, permutations, financial equations, and a lot more from the chapters we did throughout the semester.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
You must know your combinations! Basically the entire first midterm is on combinations. I struggled with this at first and didn't really think it was a big deal, but it is. For the second midterm what you really need to know on the financial equations because they will be more than half the questions on there. The final is cumulative so try to constantly review your notes so that you don't forget any terms that you may need to know. We also learned a few things after the second midterm that made up 50% of the final so it's best to not slack off even if it is getting to the end of the semester.
Pretty easy, overall.
Course Overview:
While the course may appear to be a course for the mathematically challenged, in reality the course serves as a unique perspective on how math can be applied in terms of real-world business dilemmas. I learned a ton about math concepts I never even knew existed! It taught one about sorting out Venn Diagrams, graphing out and maximizing/minimizing cost, and solved complex probability problems.
Course highlights:
The best part about the course was the professor; he goes over the material very slowly, and makes sure that everyone understands the material before he moves on. I learned about practical math problems, not all pertaining to business scenarios.
Hours per week:
0-2 hours
Advice for students:
Study more than you think you need to. The final exam was difficult; prepare as if you were to apply these to the real world immediately. Do that, and the material should be understood fairly quickly.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
