The course in this book is much more advanced than the usual course in commercial arithmetic. The attempt has been made to construct a practical course which will contain all the essential mathematical knowledge required in a business career.

This course develops mathematical techniques which are useful in solving 'real-world' problems involving differential equations. The course embraces the ethos of mathematical modelling, and aims to show in a practical way how equations 'work'.
