Video and Audio Lectures in Maths for Economists
"A pre-sessional resource to refresh mathematical skills and techniques in preparation for an undergraduate degree in economics." Has more than eighty videos with captions, plus slides and interactive quizzes to cover seventeen topics from arithmetic and basic algebra to matrices, at each stage showing how these techniques are relevant to economics. Created with funding from the Royal Economic Society.
Many dozens of short tutorial videos on mathematical topics, especially calculus and algebra. Each lasts a few minutes and gives audio narration while you see the instructor's hand writing. The videos can be watched for free on YouTube.
A YouTube channel of maths instructional videos, mostly aimed at school level, organised into dozens of topic playlists such as "Financial Math", "Differentiation Applications", "Ratios and Proportions", and "Systems of Equations and Inequalities". The videos can also be browsed through a database
Forty minute video using narrated slides to give an overview of mathematical and economic concepts relating to COVID-19. Covers a simplified version of the SIR model of epidemics, justifying healthcare expenditure, and flattening the curve. Linked from the description are the original slides and the Excel model. Part of the CORE Economics resources created in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This set of video materials ranges through 54 topics in finance, from the basics of interest and compounding, inflation, and the difference between real and nominal return; through stocks, bonds, mutual funds and hedge funds; to options, Collateralised Debt Obligations, and Credit Default Swaps. Each topic has a short playlist of YouTube videos with text transcripts. The sections on investment and the economy reflect the US origin of the material.
More than sixty short films explaining mathematical concepts by putting them in a real-world context, hosted by Ken Heather of the University of Portsmouth. Each video combines a live-action explanation of the idea followed by a numerical example which is worked through on-screen. Each film can be downloaded in low resolution or high-resolution Windows Media format, or viewed in YouTube. The animations can be viewed separately as Flash files that play in a web browser. The five categories are 1) Mathematical review, 2) Linear equations, 3) Mathematics of finance and growth, 4) Linear programming, and 5) Differentiation and integration.
