Using Computerized Spreadsheets: Mathematics for Retail Buying is a computer spreadsheet component for retail buying and merchandising mathematics students. Cushman demonstrates how to create, calculate and analyze using Microsoft Excel spreadsheets. A cross-platform CD-ROM is included for students to apply the lessons as they learn them in the book. This book is designed as a supplement to Mathematics for Retail Buying, Revised 5th Edition, by Bette K. Tepper, but the concepts are easily adaptable to any text meant to cover the mathematical concepts associated with retail buying.
Linda M. Cushman serves as the Director and Department Chair of Retail Management and Consumer Studies at Syracuse University's College for Human Development. She is a member of both the American Collegiate Retailing Association and the International Textile and Apparel Association.
