Basic math. Do a lot of practice. The in-class quizzes are tricky. Final exam is ok but has some tricky questions. Make sure you have good foundation in math (e.g. algebra). Study this course serious if you want to study further economics as the math is used extensively.

Very mathematical based because it aims to build your math foundation for other economics courses. Class tests & online quizzes are quite challenging if you don't know the concepts very well. Also, final exam is quite tough so don't cram the last minute. Practice, practice and practice.

A good course in terms of laying the mathematical foundation that is required for further study in economics. If you have done 2 unit maths or above in high school you will find at least half the course a breeze, as there are a lot of topics you would have seen before. The new stuff (mainly matrices and multi-variable calculus) may seem challenging at first, but like most math topics, if you sit down and do lots of practice it will become fairly straightforward. Overall, it is an easy course to get at least a DN for those who are actually willing to sit down and work hard. Only blight on the course is the lecturer. Was hard to understand his accent, and I only attended 1 lecture for this reason. However it was still a pain trying to understand him when I had to listen to the recording, as you still need to listen to the lecturers explanations when starting those new topics you haven't seen before.

Topics include the mathematics of finance, matrix algebra, linear programming, as well as calculus and unconstrained and constrained optimisation. Special emphasis is put on the illustration of the covered concepts and techniques with applications to typical problems in business and economics. Knowledge of the topics is essential: basic functions and graphs, including logarithms and exponentials, and solutions of linear and quadratic equations.

Lecturer can't teach, concepts didn't seem hard, but when she just read off the slides and didn't make anything clearer, it was definitely seemed like a waste of everybody's time.

Lecturer was really hard to understand for this subject. My tutor also wasn't very helpful. The thing that I found most helpful was going to PASS class - they give you worksheets with questions from past exams, they're also happy to help you with any questions about homework/content. The final exam is MUCH harder than the class tests and quizzes! Try to get your hands on past papers to get an idea of the difficulty.

This subject is extremely difficult despite the amount of time spent studying. Having done extensive maths is definitely beneficial to understanding, so if maths isn't a strong point I would highly not recommend choosing this subject.

Not easy. I spent about 5x more time revising for this than my other 3 subjects put together and got my lowest mark on it.

Solid subject, be careful final exams are ALOT harder than the tutorial quizzes. Interesting concepts and good skills to know for economics/finance/commerce etc. Tutors are helpful, lecturer is okayish, bit hard to understand
