OverviewThis online math course teaches everyday mathematics used in Human Resource Management. We begin with a discussion of basic mathematics, including math order of operations and types of measurement. Then we look at how calculating percentages and percentiles can be used to analyze Human Resource data. We show you how to calculate the slope of a line for line graphs. Then we teach techniques involved in the procurement of salary survey data, including random sampling. We show you how to analyze this salary data using a histogram to view normal distribution, skewness, and outliers. After this, we look at how statistical tests and a null hypothesis can be used to support your results.
