Mathematics for Economics: An integrated approach is aimed primarily at students with a background in GCSE and A level mathematics. The focus on learning mathematics through the economic applications provides greater motivation for students and beds down the concepts effectively, providing the economic 'intuition' that lecturers want to instil.
?
Focus is mainly on economics rather than business and economics as in some other texts

Down to earth and practical style of writing
The sequence of modules is logical for gradually introducing maths
Wisniewski takes students through topics step by step and his style will be welcomed by students at all levels.
The text has strong pedagogy throughout including progress checks and knowledge checks that appear throughout each module, and exercises and worked examples at the end of each module.
