Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
This is a major requirement to any student who want to learn economics. It gives the student the basic knowledge and information on how to go about basic calculus problems in the areas of integration and differentiation.
Course highlights:
I learned different types of Integrals which include indefinite, definite and Improper. Then I was introduced to rules of integration and few mistakes that students make. This rules include power, exponential, log, sum and multiple. In derivative calculus one is able to learn optimization, maxima and minima, critical points and tangents and how to apply them in other fields. In my case I was able to apply the skills I acquired from this course in Economics. This areas were mainly in production functions like Cobb Douglas.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
The course requires a lot of attention and skills in mathematics. always feel free to follow the lecturer and ask them many question as possible. Always be attentive in the lecture halls and don't let any information pass you.
Pretty easy, overall.
