Mathematics 123 - WMAT123

This unit introduces students to a range of mathematical techniques from algebra and calculus. Its focus is on the modern application of these ideas, with a particular emphasis on applications to problems in economics, business and finance, and provides a sound mathematical basis for further study in these areas. Topics include algebra relevant to basic financial mathematics, the development of the techniques of differentiation and integration with applications to constrained and unconstrained optimisation, including multivariable cases, and the development and application of a variety of useful approximation techniques. A key focus of the unit is the development of a clear understanding of the role that mathematics plays in modern society, and the development of a sound grasp of how mathematics is used to provide sophisticated modelling of complex real problems.
