Lse Economics and Economic history…help please

Anyone studying/applied to this course that could help out in terms of how the course is, whether it’s a good balance between quantitative & qualitative or could i just do maths,stats and business as that’s another course i’m interested in

Only thing is i just did Maths Bio and Econ and got an A in math so i don’t know whether i’d be competitive enough to without FM or if i’d be able to handle it

Quantitative Methods Mathematics: involves sets, functions, equations, graphs. Difference equations, sequences, limits. Differentiation, inverse functions, exponential and logarithmic functions. Partial differentiation, chain rule, homogeneous functions. Optimisation in two variables: unconstrained and constrained. Lagrange multipliers. Vector notation and convexity. Matrix notation, systems of linear equations, inverse matrices. Integration. Differential equations.

Quantitative Methods Statistics: data visualisation and descriptive statistics, probability theory, discrete probability distributions, continuous probability distributions, sampling distributions of statistics, point estimation, interval estimation, hypothesis testing, contingency tables and the chi-squared test, correlation and linear regression.

Remember it is only in the first year.

These topics are all in A-Level Further Maths, so I would recommend studying it self taught.

I can send you a zip file with all the IAL and UK eBooks for both Maths and Further Maths for free of course!!! 🙂

Yes, I do Maths and Further Maths along with Chemistry and 3 languages. 🙂

You're anonymous, so I can't PM send you the link to the OneDrive zip file. 😧
