Accounting Math Professional
This program takes students through the fundamentals of algebra and statistics as well as their endless applications. Students will learn to solve multiple types of equations including both linear and quadratic functions and master the skills necessary to solve challenging word problems, including actual scenarios one encounters on the job. Further, this program will ensure students gain the skills necessary to perform complex statistical analysis of selected samples, understand how to choose the most applicable samples for study and draw conclusions from the analysis pulled from various data sets. Students will learn to gather multiple answers to questions posed every day in business using statistical distributions, probabilities, confidence intervals and more! Once able to build applicable statistical models and interpret the data pulled together, these skills will serve students in their careers for years to come.
This program presents students with the key concepts of college-level algebra and statistics. Students will be introduced to solving equations and inequalities, functions (including linear, quadratic, polynomial, rational, exponential, and logarithmic). Further, this program will offer students the skills necessary to interpret and critically evaluate statistics commonly used to describe, predict, and evaluate data in an information-driven environment.
