Introduction To Finance Assignment 9

The two topics of algebra and functions & annuities detailed below are taught in parallel, with two lectures a week on each. The tutorials are a combination of the two topics, pertaining to the previous week's lectures.

Lecture Outline


  • Linear Equations and Matrices (9 lectures)
    • Algebra of matrices and vectors.
    • Systems of linear equations, elementary row operations, Gauss-Jordan elimination.
    • Inverse of a matrix and applications to solution of systems of equations.
  • Leontief Economic Models (6 lectures)
    • Leontief open and closed economic model. Determinants.
  • Optimization (8 lectures)
    • Linear inequalities, linear programming problems, geometric and algebraic solution.
    • Simplex algorithm.
Functions & Annuities
  • Functions (11 lectures)
    • Linear and quadratic functions with applications. Domain, graph and composition of functions.
    • Simple rational functions, modulus, piecewise defined functions.
    • Exponential and logarithmic functions.
    • Limits and continuity.
  • Financial Mathematics (12 lectures)
    • Arithmetic and geometric sequences.
    • Simple and compound interest.
    • Present and future values.
    • Continuous compounding.
    • Annuities, loans and amortization.
