After a review of the basic concepts in algebra, the course will cover topics on linear and non-linear functions, graphs and equations, solving systems of equations, decision making under uncertainty and introductory calculus (derivative rules, partial and total differentiation). An emphasis will be placed to illustrate the mathematical methods with the help of simple examples from the social sciences.Course ObjectiveThe objective of this course is to provide the essential mathematical foundation required to study social sciences and business management. 到達目標 The goal of this course is:・to understand the basic concepts of mathematical methods for analysis in busuiness, economics and the social sicences 授業計画と内容 Course Schedule:Week 1 Introduction and Mathematical PreliminariesWeek 2 The Straight LineWeek 3 The Straight Line and ApplicationsWeek 4 Simultaneous EquationsWeek 5 Simultaneous EquationsWeek 6 Non-linear Functions Week 7 Non-linear Functions and ApplicationsWeek 8 Mid term ExaminationWeek 9 Introduction to ProbabilityWeek 10 Financial MathematicsWeek 11 Differentiation Week 12 Differentiation and ApplicationsWeek 13 Partial DifferentiationWeek 14 Partial Differentiation and Applications Week 15 Final Examination 成績評価の方法・観点 Evaluation Criteria and GradingGrading of the course will be determined as follows:1.
