SPECIAL NOTE: Students who require BEA240 Quantitative Economic Analysis to complete the requirements of their degree may substitute BEA141 Quantitative Economic Analysis in its place.
This unit provides economics and business students with basic quantitative techniques that help them to analyse problems in Economics. The emphasis of the unit will not be the development of new techniques but on the application of techniques to a variety of economic problems. To some extent many of the mathematical tools covered will already be familiar to students from TCE Mathematics Applied. Since students will bring different mathematics backgrounds to the unit, there will be a thorough revision of basic concepts and tools as the unit progresses.
ASSESSMENT: Internal assessment 40%; Final exam 60%.
TEACHING PATTERN: 1 x 2 hour lecture, 1 x 1 hour workshop per week.
FLEXIBLE & ONLINE STUDY OPTIONS Note: Class attendance may still be required
Web dependent - H,L,W Some parts of this unit will be taught online
Resource supported teaching & learning - H,L,W Additional resources are provided for your optional use; e.g. audio taped lectures
About Flexible Study Options
Either TCE MAP5C Mathematics Applied, OR a higher level mathematics subject, OR equivalent studies as accepted by the School of Economics and Finance and/or by the Faculty of Business, OR a bridging mathematics unit (either UPP090 or BEA109)
Units are offered in attending mode unless otherwise indicated (that is attendance is required at the campus identified). A unit identified as offered by distance, that is there is no requirement for attendance, is identified with a nominal enrolment campus. A unit offered to both attending students and by distance from the same campus is identified as having both modes of study.
Campus - H Hobart, L Launceston, W Burnie. Study Centre - V Sydney, R Rozelle, P Beauty Point. Distance units may also have a campus identifier of I Isolated, N Interstate, O Overseas. Units delivered in Transnational Education (TNE) Programs have a campus identifier of A Hangzhou, F Fuzhou, G Shanghai, K KDU Malaysia, Q Kuwait or Y Hong Kong.
