Welcome to Business Math
This class explores and reviews basic mathematical skills and knowledge needed to function as a professional artist or designer. Topics covered will include: units and measurement; data analysis, graphical representation and interpretation; fundamentals of algebra and the use of formulas; introduction to probability and statistics; applications to personal finance; and a focus on finding funding within art and design industries.
Graded assignments for this course will be completed in Connect, an online learning system from McGraw-Hill. I'll show you how to log into Connect on our first day of class. Please be aware the Connect tool is required for this class. Connect costs $95 and includes access to the online textbook.
Please bring your computer to all of our class meetings. You do not need a special calculator (TI-83/84) for this class. However, you might choose to use one. If interested in a TI-83/84, you might want to consider one of these free or low cost apps.
Throughout this course your knowledge will be assessed via 12 homework assignments, 5 projects/discussion board posts and one final reflection assignment.
Homework assignments are completed in Connect.
Projects will completed in class or posted outside of class. Please reference the instructions given in class.
GoStudio will be used to report attendance and grades including mid-term deficiencies and final grades.
