Introduction

I teach a one-semester Mathematics and Statistics unit to first-year students on specialist and joint programmes in Economics. These students are a very cosmopolitan group with a wide range of mathematical ability, ranging from long-forgotten Grade C in GCSE to A-grade Maths A'level or its equivalent.
