Area of Study :
This course presents different types of equations with their graphical representations; it proceeds to the rules of differentiation, (partial differentiation- marginal analysis- different types of optimization, linear and non-linear first and second order differentiation). Then it continues with the rules of integration, (indefinite and definite integration). The course also introduces matrices (definition- operations on matrices and determinants, inverse of a matrix, Jacobian Matrix, Hessian Matrix). It also identifies the Linear- Equation System and Cramer's Rule; homogeneous and homothetic functions, as well as explaining concavity and convexity; quasi- concavity and quasi-convexity.
Course Goals:
• Acquaint students with graphing different types of equations and analyze them.
• Teach students the calculation of derivatives, partial derivatives and solving optimization problems.
• Calculate different comparative static problems to find maximum and/or minimum of functions of single or several variables.
• Familiarize students with the rules of Integration.
