Abstract

[Introduction] Model building applications using mathematics and Statistics are discussed widely in many textbooks. For instance, Linear Programming and Regression Analysis are applied to a variety of situations which range from manufacturing to health and education. The employers' needs and expectations in terms of these techniques need to be investigated. Teaching approaches would obviously have a significant effect on students' learning which consequently meets the employers' needs. Feedback from the employers and students will certainly help with making improvements to the teaching materials and training.
