Product description

From the Back Cover

Mathematics for Economics and Business

provides a thorough foundation in mathematical methods for economics, business studies and accountancy students. Assuming little prior knowledge, this informal and friendly text is suitable for those who have not studied maths in depth before. The wide range of material and self-study approach also makes it appropriate for use on higher level courses.

Features:

  • Topics are divided into one or two hour sessions to help students work at a realistic pace
  • Fully worked examples throughout the text and many problems and practice problems, all with fully worked solutions, help build student confidence
  • Numerous economic and business applications relate maths to the real world
Features new to this edition:
  • Examples and practice problems demonstrating the use of computer software packages, such as Excel and Maple
  • A chapter on difference and differential equations.
  • Additional material on geometric series
  • Sections on index numbers and inflation
‘What students need is practice, practice, practice; and Jacques offers more opportunity for practice than other textbooks.’
                                                                           June Lewis, Sheffield University

This text is suitable for first year economics, business and accountancy students taking introductory level maths courses.

Ian Jacques was formerly a senior lecturer in the School of Mathematical and Information Sciences at Coventry University, and has considerable experience of teaching mathematical methods to students studying economics, business and accountancy.
