Connections 20004. The Calculus of Microeconomics

Microeconomics becomes all the more interesting when techniques from calculus can be applied to many of the issues it addresses. In particular, the graphic representation of marginal analysis, continuity and optimization in microeconomics can be approached analytically through the tools of differentiation, the major topic in introductory calculus. Many examples and projects in the introduction calculus offered in Math 101 will have a basis in economics; problem sets and class time in Economics 102/112 will involve application of the calculus.
