Online Text and Notes in Maths for Economists
Although this site is principally aimed at learners up to school year 12, the "Advanced" section contains primers on topics including algebra, calculus, combinations and permutations, and matrices. As well as text and diagrams, the site has interactive self-test questions and some interactive mathematical games.
This is the hypertext version of a set of lecture notes for a second-year undergraduate course - Mathematical methods for economic theory. It covers the basic mathematical tools used in economic theory. Knowledge of elementary calculus is assumed. The main topics are multivariate calculus, concavity and convexity, optimization theory, differential equations, and difference equations
From an online course on mathematics and statistics, this module introduces ratios, proportions and percentages in turn, using text and activities. The intended duration of the module is five hours.

These case studies in data search, management and economic interpretation are aimed at first-time students of economics. They are downloadable in Word format with embedded links, to adapt, print and/or put in a virtual learning environment. They were produced by Dean Garratt and Stephen Heasell, Nottingham Trent University as part of an Economics Network project. They cover topics such as economic growth, house prices, household debt, consumption spending and government spending.
MathCentre is a very large repository of tutorial videos, interactive assessments and PDF handouts to help with maths topics, roughly at A-level. This link is to a range of topics selected as relevant to Economics. The materials are categorised by area (such as Algebra, Arithmetic and Differentiation) and by individual topic.
This series of fifteen case studies, downloadable as .doc files, illustrates the use of mathematical concepts in economic and business contexts. They are intended to help students see the importance of maths in economic reasoning. Each case study is four sides long and makes use of graphs and algebra. Most include questions at the end. Permission is given for educators to redistribute and alter these materials as much as they like. These materials were produced by an Economics Network project with funding from the JISC.
Mathematics for economists is a course webpage produced by Dieter Balkenborg of the University of Exeter, the 2008 version of the course was taught by Juliette Stephenson. The material includes lecture slides, class exercises and solutions, homework tasks, and exam papers, usually made available as PDF files. Also includes links to previous versions of the course stretching back to 2001.
Lecture notes presented here in PDF, deal with topics including differentiation and integration, utility functions and dynamic models, as part of a webpage supporting a Basic Mathematics for Economists course at the LSE in 2003/4. It also includes a course syllabus, class exercises and solutions. The link goes to Archive.org's copy of the site, which is no longer on the LSE server.
