Quantitative Analysis is an introductory course in mathematical and statistical concepts and techniques with applications in commerce and taxation. This course will train you in essential quantitative skills and show how these skills can be used in formulating and solving a wide variety of problems in economics, accountancy, finance and taxation. In this course the applications of mathematical and statistical methods in commerce and taxation are more than mere illustrations; they constitute an integral part of the course material. Quantitative Analysis is intended to be as simple, comprehensive and self-sufficient as practicable. It introduces and develops mathematical and statistical ideas and techniques from the basic principles, assuming very little mathematical knowledge on your part. The course is programmed midway through the BTax Accounting stream but if you need earlier skilling in mathematics and statistics, you may undertake the course earlier in your program.
