Introduction to basic mathematical concepts of differential -integral calculus and optimization theory (functions of one and two variables). Emphasis is placed on understanding and use of mathematics in economic theory. Upon successful completion of the course the student / her will be able to:
ü Understands concepts of economic theory using mathematical methods.
ü To use mathematical methods in economics (modeling using these methods)
ü To analyze and synthesize data.
ü To use various ways of thinking (eg inductive, productive).
ü To develop different problem solving strategies.
