Basic Mathematics for Economists /FONT 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.This new edition incorporates several new features, including new sections on: financial mathematics continuous growth· matrix algebraImproved 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. Mike Rosser is Principal Lecturer in Economics in the Business School at Coventry University.
