    Abstract:
    Tsao, Hung-ping (2023). Mathematics of Hung-Ping Tsao II: Business Mathematics.In: "Evolutionary Progress in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM)", Wang, Lawrence K. and Tsao, Hung-ping (editors). 5 (4), April ; 238 p. Lenox Institute Press, MA, USA ..... ABSTRACT: During my seventeen years (1985-2002) of teaching at College of Business, San Francisco State University, the tailor-made textbook “College Mathematics” for my classes has been out of print for over twenty years now. I would like to share its contents, except for problem sections, with readers who might benefit from quite a few innovative ideas in pedagogical perspectives. The purpose of this sequel of “MATHEMATICS OF HUNG-PING TSAO” (see the link h-tsao-2020-hcommons.org) is to share, retrospectively, with readers the stem of my teaching resources. I would especially like to refresh my Kung-fu analogy of those differentiation rules, new approach in solving optimization problems in calculus and the cross-multiplication method for solving linear programming problems. All in all, my doctoral dissertation “Some Extremal Problems in Ordered Structures” played an important role in my tortuous career, Part I and Part II of which were published more than ten years after their submissions to the Journal of Discrete Mathematics. I was mistreated by the Journal of Discrete Mathematics when Daniel J. Kleitman was the Chief Editor. To support my claim, I present in the end a rejection letter from Daniel J. Kleitman in 1975 with a referee’s comments, contrary to what the reviewer of Mathematical Review said about Part I of my doctoral dissertation. Partly because of my frustration, I pursued eight years of actuarial career, for which I have no remorse. As a matter of fact, I had benefited a lot from it. In “MATHEMATICS OF HUNG-PING TSAO” , I have included many tidbits in Actuarial Mathematics that I previously published in Transactions and ARCH of the Society of Actuaries.
