Math Advanced Mathematics for Decision Making (M2578) How does an owner of six McDonald's restaurants decide on appropriate work schedules for her employees? How does Hertz Rent-A- Car decide how many cars of each type to have available for rent at the various airports to maximize profit? How does UPS decide where to locate offices and delivery routes to ensure packages get delivered on time and with minimal cost? These questions and more can be answered using Operations Research - an application of math widely used in industry. This course provides an introduction to mathematical models of Operations Research. It offers a mathematics framework for building decision making models to tackle complex real-world problems. The activities build on the basic math concepts that all high school students study in algebra. Math applications do exist - really!
Statistics and Probability P(M2661) Would you like to be able to testify in court as to the probability of some claim being likely?" "What's the best way to find your perfect match, perfect job or perfect car?" "Do you yearn to know the meaning of 'margin of error'?" "Well the wait is over. Take stats next year and you'll learn it all!"
AP Statistics (M2651) Students in AP Statistics and Probability will develop and use probability models, analyze and interpret given data sets and graphs, and carry out significance tests and interpret the results in preparation for the AP exam.
