The course is designed to review students' knowledge of elementary mathematics and to expose them to some of the mathematical concepts and techniques that are required to study mathematical models in economics and the management sciences. Emphasis will be placed on the understanding of important concepts and developing analytical skills rather than just computational skills, the use of algorithms and the manipulation of formulae.
