The increasing emphasis on improved management, both in government and in private industry, has created a requirement that persons other than pure mathematicians be knowledgeable of mathematical procedures more sophisticated than the elementary ones of adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing. The acquisition of this knowledge can be particularly painful to those who have been away from college for along period and those who have never been exposed to higher mathematics. Close scrutiny of available texts indicated that there were none which incorporated sufficient uncomplicated explanations of the various mathematical concepts which a management student must comprehend, if he is to be successful in his pursuit of an advanced degree in Management. The authors of this research paper are of the opinion that down to earth, easy to understand explanations of the basic fundamentals of higher mathematics would assist students embarking upon a course of study in the management field. The areas covered in this research paper are: algebra, functions, graphs, equations, logarithms, exponents, progressions, and elementary calculus.
