#### Deskripsi

*Now 4 colour and includes an outstanding resources
suite!*

*Essential Mathematics for Economics and
Business* is established as one of the leading
introductory textbooks for non maths specialists taking economics
and business degrees.

The fundamental mathematical concepts are explained as simply and briefly as possible, using a wide selection of worked examples, graphs and real-world applications. It combines a non-rigorous approach to mathematics with applications in economics and business.

'The text is aimed at providing an introductory-level exposition of mathematical methods for economics and business students. In terms of level, pace, complexity of examples and user-friendly style the text is excellent - it genuinely recognises and meets the needs of students with minimal maths background.'

**Colin Glass, Emeritus Professor, University of Ulster**

'One of the major strengths of this book is the range of exercises in both drill and applications. Also the "worked examples" are excellent; they provide examples of the use of mathematics to realistic problems and are easy to follow'

**Donal Hurley, formerly of University College Cork**

‘The most comprehensive reader in this topic yet, this book is an essential aid to the avid economist who loathes mathematics!’

- Significantly revised resources including provision of a new testbank of approximately 500 questions in Maple TA and Respondus
- Improved clarity.
- Animated Worked Examples with audio narration – these help guide students through the selected worked examples, giving them a visual and audio run down of the problem, in an easy to follow step by step method.
- Problems in Context explain the mathematical techniques involved in common economics or business problems. These are written by specialists and are intended to put the maths into a familiar context for students whose maths isn’t strong.
- Revised and updated Worked Examples
- Revised and updated Progress Exercises, including additional introductory questions to help students whose maths background is weak.
- Updated and extended use of Excel where appropriate.
- New 4-colour text design.

- Combines a non-rigorous approach to mathematics with applications in economics and business.
- Building up gently from a low level, the author provides a clear, systematic coverage of the key mathematical topics required by students studying economics and business.
- All mathematical methods are illustrated by well-chosen examples and exercises.
- The book’s careful arrangement enables it to be used in a variety of course formats – for students with and without prior knowledge of the subject – as well as for reference and self-study.
