Economics Honours and Mathematics
The mathematics required to succeed in Economics Honours consists mainly of differential calculus (including multivariate), some integral calculus, optimisation (including constrained optimisation), linear algebra, and probability. We teach needed concepts in ECOS2903, but you should enter that unit already comfortable with functions and differential calculus. ECOS2903 (or MATH2070/2970) is a prerequisite unit for ECOS3901 and ECOS3902. MATH2070/2970 is an alternative prerequisite unit for Honours available to students studying MATH. Not only do students need to be able to work under exam conditions with these tools, but in ECOS2903 Mathematical Economics A they will need to be able to apply them to solve problems in economics that may be drawn from any concept taught in introductory economics courses OR from intermediate microeconomics. The mathematical concepts are not studied in isolation from economics. You should take ECOS2903 at the same time as ECOS2901, unless you plan to take MATH2070/2970 at the same time as ECOS2902. I recently analysed results for students who ignored this advice and took ECOS2901 and ECOS2902 without taking either ECOS2903 or math units in the School of Mathematics; their marks suffered by around 67 percentage points in each unit. These students actually had better firstyear results than the students who did take ECOS2903 or MATH units, but worse secondyear results. Mathematics study is an investment that helps performance in Economics Honours.
To succeed in ECOS2903 students will need to be comfortable with functions and differential calculus. If your highschool mathematics courses have not well prepared you for this, then I STRONGLY ADVISE you to prepare beforehand, as the pace of a 13week course may leave you behind. Your options at Sydney vary by semester (there are more options in Semester 1) and include:
1. You should check on bridging courses and online materials available at the Mathematics Learning Centre: http://sydney.edu.au/stuserv/maths_learning_centre/MBC.shtml. Enrolment in bridging courses normally closes in very early February.
2. MATH1111 is offered in Semester 1. It is probably the best introductory MATH option for students with limited highschool mathematics preparation. This unit is now offered as a free MOOC through Coursera.org: https://www.coursera.org/learn/introductiontocalculus .
3. Some students adopt the strategy of simultaneously enrolling in ECON1003 and ECOS2903, giving them more time to study mathematical economics concepts. Some also do this but intend to drop one of these two subjects before the HECS census date, depending on their comfortlevel with the material.
4. For students with a stronger highschool math background and an interest in mathematics, the entire junior MATH program can be found at: http://www.maths.usyd.edu.au/u/UG/JM/
Mathematics is especially useful for advanced study in some fields of economics and in econometrics. For students wishing to prepare for advanced graduate study in economics, taking more mathematics is desirable though not essential. In particular, many US PhD programs in economics like incoming students to have taken a “real analysis” course, though most do not insist on this. Currently, MATH2023/2923 is the best available course for this purpose. Intermediatelevel study in calculus or algebra is also very useful. I am happy to further discuss math study possibilities for students interested in this path, as are many of your economics or econometrics instructors.
