Econ 11A Instructor: Raj Sengupta Tu Th 9-12:30pm Summer 2009 Jack Baskin 372 UC Santa Cruz Econ 11A: Mathematical Methods for Economists, 1 Course Overview Econ 11A- Mathematical Methods for Economics, I is designed to provide an introduction to differential calculus in one variable and its applications to economics. The course will cover topics from pre-calculus and calculus. We will focus on functions and graphs, limits, derivatives of univariate functions (algebraic as well as exponential and logarithmic functions). Differential calculus itself begins with the mathematical concept of a limit. We use limits to define the important concepts of continuity and differentiability, and we learn to compute the derivatives of the functions that we commonly use to model economic variables, i.e., polynomials, power functions, exponential functions, logarithm functions, and combinations of these functions. Other technical topics include implicit differentiation, Taylor polynomials and Taylor approximation.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
