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.

Teaching and assessment

We’re currently reviewing teaching and assessment of our modules in light of the COVID-19 situation. We’ll publish the latest information as soon as possible.

Contact hours and workload

This module is approximately 150 hours of work. This breaks down into about 33 hours of contact time and about 117 hours of independent study. The University may make minor variations to the contact hours for operational reasons, including timetabling requirements.

This module is running in the academic year 2021/22. We also plan to offer it in future academic years. However, we are constantly looking to improve and enhance our courses. There may be changes to modules in response to student demand or feedback, changes to staff expertise or updates to our curriculum. We may also need to make changes in response to COVID-19. We’ll make sure to let our applicants know of material changes to modules at the earliest opportunity.
