Economics students will welcome the new edition of this excellent textbook. Given that 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. All explanations of mathematical concepts are set out in the context of applications in economics.
- financial mathematics
- continuous growth
- matrix algebra
Improved pedagogical features, such as learning objectives and end of chapter questions, along with an overall example-led format and the use of Microsoft Excel for relevant applications mean that this textbook will continue to be a popular choice for both students and their lecturers.
