GE-MMW MATHEMATICS IN THE MODERN WORLD || ECON 3B

            Mathematics in the Modern World is a 3-unit basic core course subject offered to BA Economics students. This course aims to discuss the nature of mathematics leading to the appreciation of its practical, intellectual, social, and aesthetic dimensions. It includes the study of the nature of mathematics and how the perception of this leads to different tools for understanding and dealing with various aspects of present-day living such as managing personal finances, making social choices, appreciating geometric designs, understanding codes used in data transmissions, and security, and dividing limited resources fairly.

            At the end of the semester, the students will produce a term paper about the different social and economic problems recognizing the use of mathematics in addressing the issues.
