Mathematical Methods

This course consists of two exams held in the first week of September covering mathematical and statistical methods commonly used in economic modeling. The course has two parts. Part I covers an examination of topics related to 721-Micro Theory I and part II covers an examination of topics related to 723-Macro Theory I and matrix algebra. Students registered in 721 (723) must write the exam related to part I (part II). A student’s score on the part I (part II) exam counts as 10% of the student’s final grade in 721-Micro Theory I (723-Macro Theory I ). To help students, the Economics Department offers a voluntary preparation camp in August. This camp is an intensive ten-day refresher course in mathematics that has been designed to help students succeed in the examinations.
