Overview

Economics students will welcome the new edition of this excellent textbook. Mathematics is an integral part of economics and understanding basic concepts is vital. Many students come into economics courses without having studied mathematics for a number of years. This clearly written book will help to develop quantitative skills in even the least numerate student up to the required level for a general Economics or Business Studies course. This second edition features new sections on subjects such as:

matrix algebra

part year investment

financial mathematics

Improved pedagogical features, such as learning objectives and end of chapter questions, along with the use of Microsoft Excel and the overall example-led style of the book means that it will be a sure fire hit with both students and their lecturers.

    very readable

    This book is a great introduction for students with a limited math background, or a good review for those away from math for awhile. It is ideally suited to the math needs of senior undergraduate and masters level economics students (hence the word basic).
