Post your questions here. A few of us have gotten through a lot of math already so we can lend a hand.

for business you get math taught by business. you learn interesting things like one plus one sometimes equals three.

That is one hell of a line.

You'd be surprised how much math you'll need when pursuing a business degree. As an example, you'll need Calc 1 to get into undergrad at Haas and when you get in, you have to take statistics and possibly some introductory programming. To get into Haas MBA, they expect you to have taken linear algebra. The idea is, I believe, is that problem solving and analytical skills are keys in the business world as optimization is the goal a lot of the times. I recommmend taking some programming classes.

lol.. oooh!! math!!! lucky you!!! you can always post here.. but.. we cant exactly do your homework for you (or can we? fun!!!) cuz really.. when doing precal or cal.. you just need to do problems over and over and youll get use to it. theres no necessity of proofs at that level so you really dont need to know the concepts... its really just a matter of figuring out which equation/formula and then plug and chug.
we should sooo get a math group together and sit around discussing theorems and stuff.. that would be soooo cool.. :smile:
since we're on the topic of asking for help... anyone have skills in using Matlab? it been over a year since ive used it and am rusty... cant seem to get my programs right...

No matlab, but I can do SPSS (use it for my job) and a couple of lesser known statistical packages.
