Mathematics develops strong problem solving skills that will complement the economics side of your course and allow you to understand the more complex elements of the subject, so that you can examine the decisions of individuals, the strategies of firms and the policies of individuals.You will explore topics including:- Microeconomics (economics of producers and consumers)- Macroeconomics (economics of nations)- Financial topics such as derivatives, portfolio behaviour and asset pricing- Statistical methods for studying big data- Computational techniques in languages such as Matlab and R- Relevant mathematical tools including calculus and differential equationsMathematics is a discipline in which precise propositions can lead, through elegant arguments, to far-reaching consequences, including surprising applications. The clear-cut nature of the subject means that a higher proportion of mathematics students obtain first-class degrees than in many other subjects.
