ECON1004 - Introduction to Mathematics for Economics
To provide students with the mathematics to take them from GCE A level standard to that required for the remainder of the economics degree
At the end of the module, students should:
- Understand elementary matrix algebra in a form suitable for application to econometrics and optimization.
- Understand calculus of several variables, including optimization of functions of several variables, and be able to apply their knowledge to simple economic problems.
- Understand simple first order differential and difference equations and be able to apply their knowledge to simple problems in economic dynamics.
