Mathematics for Business Economics is intended for starting (business) economics students. The book repeats high school mathematics, but also extends to new domains. The focus is on economic applications: throughout the book many examples are given from microeconomics, modern portfolio theory, inventory management and statistics. A recurrent theme in these examples is the athematical technique of optimization.
For a better understanding this book contains a large number of exercises. Furthermore, there is a freely accessible e-learning environment, www.wiskundeoptiu.nl/business-economics, where all mathematical topics are explained using text, multiple choice questions and films. Together, the book and e-learning environment provide a solid mathematical foundation for your study (business) economics.
