Professor: Yonatan Katznelson

Prerequisites: Introductory Calculus part I

Grade Received: A


 

UCSC Class Description

“Mathematical tools and reasoning, with applications to economics. Topics are drawn from multivariable differential calculus and single variable integral calculus, and include partial derivatives, linear and quadratic approximation, optimization with and without constraints, Lagrange multipliers, definite and indefinite integrals, and elementary differential equations.”

The Work I Did

In this class I built upon  Introductory Calculus part I and learned single integral calculus and multivariate differential calculus. I learned about antiderivativs, definite integrals, fundatmental theorm of calculus, elementary differential equations, partial derivatives. I then applied those concepts to basic economic linear approximation elasticity and optimization problems. I was tested on this material through quizzes, a midterm, and a final exam.

Here are samples of my work:
