Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
This course is the first introductory financial course in the new finance major developed by school of accounting and finance. Finance in simple term engages with subject matters related to money, time and the markets. I would recommend this course as it provides the foundation of mathematics in financial calculations which will be needed to enable students to complete the finance and accounting degree.

In this course I have learnt algebraic expressions, systems of linear equations, linear programming, non-linear programming-Lagrange Multiplier Method, basic calculus and applications, simple and compound interest and continuous compounding, time value of money, fixed and growing annuities, discounted cash flow, risk and returns.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
In order to succeed in this course, students have to follow the study schedule, and if you are finding a particular unit or concept difficult than allocate more time for studies. Attend tutorials, do the required readings and activities. Do well in assignment and create your own study group.
