AS/MATH 1540 3.0 FW

Introductory Mathematics for Economists II

      This course introduces and develops topics, including matrix algebra, optimization, comparative statics of general function models, and their applications in economics. This course or equivalent is required for all Economics majors or minors; it also satisfies the mathematics requirement for the Schulich School of Business. (Same as AS/ECON 1540 3.0.) Offered in both terms.
      This course is normally taken by students who have completed MATH 1530 3.0 and are in the Ordinary Mathematics for Commerce Programme.
      The material that is covered in the course is mainly matrix algebra and functions of many variables. The material will be covered in a way that will be of interest to students in economics and business. The emphasis will be on the acquisition and use of tools rather than on a rigorous development of the tools. Applications will include the solution of linear equations, and maxima and minima of functions of several variables with and without constraints.
      The text and grading scheme are anticipated to be the same as those for MATH 1530 3.0.

Prerequisite:One of AS/MATH 1530 3.0, AS/SC/MATH 1000 3.0, AS/SC/MATH 1013 3.0, AS/SC/AK/MATH 1300 3.0, AS/ECON 1530 3.0.
CorequisiteAS/ECON 1000 3.0 or AS/ECON 1010 3.0.
