Introduction to Quantitative Methods in Economics

Do we need to study maths to learn economics?

In this course, we explore topics in linear algebra and calculus to create a basic understanding of maths as a tool for studying economics. This is a foundational course covering concepts from real numbers, polynomial functions, logarithm and exponentials, set theory, matrices, differential calculus, and basic optimisation. The idea is to make you an expert as well as comfortable with basic maths (which is often used in economics) so that you do not face any difficulties later in learning, analysing, and understanding different concepts in microeconomics, macroeconomics, development, and econometrics.
