Introduction To Mathematical Economics
The course is to enable students
acquire mathematical tools that provide a foundation for understanding other
courses in economics. Students are grounded on how to use such tools in
microeconomics, macroeconomics, econometrics and related courses.
The course applies mathematical
approaches to economics problems and issues. It involves the use of
mathematical models to economic analysis.
overall aim is to equip teacher trainees with skills of applying mathematical
analysis and principles to issues in economics.
the end of the course unit, students should demonstrate ability to:
the fundamental aspects of mathematical tools
how the use of formal mathematical reasoning can produce a deeper understanding
of economic theory
the skills in use of mathematical tools and illustrate them with application of
