Daniel ★★★★★

I have been looking for a book like this - to tutor my wife as well as to renew lost maths skills

Förklaring

Have you ever thought that you would be able to learn algebra if only you had a tutor on whom you could call whenever you wanted? Well, Quantitative Analysis – Algebra with a Business Perspective is the next best thing. Written by an experienced mathematics teacher, this e-book is presented in tutorial fashion as if a tutor was sitting next to you . . . talking you through the examples. All you need to do is turn to whatever presentation you wish . . . without having to schedule mutual meeting times and without having to pay an hourly rate.

About the author

I received my BS degree from Trenton State College (now known as the College of New Jersey, Ewing Township, New Jersey 08618, USA) in 1973. From February 1977 to the end of June 2003, I worked as a full time mathematics teacher at Point Pleasant Borough High School (Point Pleasant, New Jersey 08742, USA). Throughout my years at this school, I taught several courses offered through the mathematics department: Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Algebra 2 Honors, Basic Skills Math, Computer Programming (BASIC), Computer Programming (QBASIC), Discrete Mathematics, Geometry, Geometry Honors, SAT Preparation.

I received my MA degree from Georgian Court College (now known as Georgian Court University, Lakewood, New Jersey 08701) in 1983 after following the Supervision & Curriculum Graduate Program.

I taught at Monmouth University (West Long Branch, New Jersey 07764, USA) as an adjunct professor (through the Mathematics Department) during three semesters (SP98, SP99, FA98) while still working full-time at Point Pleasant Borough High School. Due to a conflict with my full-time teaching position, I declined any adjunct teaching duties until several years later.

After teaching secondary mathematics for more than 25 years, I retired from the Point Pleasant Borough School district at the end of June 2003. After taking some time off, I discovered that I was still in love with teaching mathematics. So, I asked to return to the list of adjunct professors at Monmouth University.

I returned to Monmouth University in September 2004. During my time at Monmouth, I have taught several courses offered through the University’s Mathematics Department:

  • MA050 – Pre-Algebra Math
  • MA100 – Quantitative Reasoning & Problem Solving
  • MA101 – College Algebra
  • MA105 – Mathematical Modeling in the Social Sciences
  • MA117 – Quantitative Analysis for Business I
  • MA203 – Foundations of Elementary Mathematics I
  • MA204 – Foundations of Elementary Mathematics II

Always looking to expand my academic achievements, I agreed to compose an e-book for Bookboon.com during the latter part of 2012…the result being this tutorial e-book entitled Quantitative Analysis – Algebra with a Business Perspective.

Förord

- acknowledgements…

First of all, I would like to thank Lynn Dietrich (director of the Math Learning Center at Monmouth University, West Long Branch, New Jersey, USA) for her help in producing this tutorial text. Without her help, many typographical errors might not have been caught before submitting the final draft.

I would also like to extend my thanks to Sophie Tergeist (bookboon.com Ltd. – Davenport House, 16 Pepper Street, London E14 9RP, United Kingdom) for her constant patience in answering my numerous questions during the production of this text.

- explanation of how the textbook is organized…

This tutorial textbook has been organized into 4 chapters (units) with several individual tutorial lessons within each chapter. As presented in the table of contents, each of the tutorials has been listed separately with its objective and its starting page. For coding purposes: “Tutorial N.M” means that the tutorial is the Mth lesson in chapter N.

I attempted to present each of the tutorials as if a person (teacher, tutor) was sitting next to the reader talking each of the concepts through. My goal was to make sure that each of the lessons was fully explained but still fully understandable. Hopefully this goal was met.

- description of whom I believe might be interested in using these tutorials…

The purpose of this tutorial textbook is to present mathematical skills (algebraic concepts) and their various applications that may be important to students of management (business) science. The applications included should allow readers to view math in a practical setting relevant to their intended careers.
