Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of the course, the student will be able to:

  • Calculate derivatives using the basic derivative rules (power, sum/difference, product, quotient and chain rules).
  • Apply the basic derivative rules to business calculations (ex: marginal function calculations).
  • Perform one variable optimization and apply this method to business problems (ex: profit maximization).
  • Calculate the derivatives of exponential and logarithmic functions.
  • Calculate partial derivatives and apply the concept to economics and business applications (ex: level curves, elasticity, etc).
  • Perform optimization on functions of more than one variable and apply this method to business examples.
  • Perform constrained optimization using the Lagrange and Kuhn Tucker methods and apply to business examples.
  • Perform basic matrix operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and inversion) and use these operations to solve systems of equations.
