Business Maths

$69.00 / year


Without a good grounding in basic business mathematics, you can’t hope to make the essential decisions you need to.

Improve your understanding of the mathematics regularly encountered in business and everyday life.

Math at school level can often become a matter of learning to carry out processes without too much thought about why we are doing so; this course aims to correct that balance.

This course focuses on understanding the mathematical concepts rather than on practising lots of calculations. We cover ideas from arithmetic, algebra and statistics, graphs and charts.

In this course you will learn:

  • Fractions, decimals, percentages, ratios, powers and roots
  • Modelling techniques, including estimation, equations and dealing with probability
  • About interest, compound interest, debits and credits
  • How to assess an investment using depreciation, present value and rate of return
  • How to pick the right graph for the data you have
