Applied Mathematics for Economists (L1058)

15 credits, Level 5

Autumn teaching

The primary aim of this module is to deepen your understanding of the most important mathematical techniques used in economic analysis through the use of applications, and to enable you to use these skills confidently and independently. The secondary aim is to enable you to understand more easily both the economic principles you are (or will be) applying in other modules on the Economics course and the mathematical principles that underlie the statistical and econometric methods encountered in other modules later in the BSc course.
