Mathematics for Social Scientists II
Instructor(s):
 Howard Thompson, University of MichiganFlint
An understanding of mathematical ideas at the level of ICPSR's course in Mathematics for Social Scientists I is a prerequisite for this course. This fourweek series of lectures will focus on various mathematical topics, knowledge of which is essential for understanding most of the ICPSR Track II courses, in particular the workshops devoted to regression analysis. Emphasis will be placed on understanding the basic concepts of applied matrix algebra and development of an intuitive knowledge of differential and integral calculus. Several important classes of functions will be defined and their usefulness will be illustrated. Matrix algebra will be discussed at about the level of Namboodiri's Matrix Algebra: An Introduction, while Kleppner and Ramsey's Quick Calculus captures the nature of the calculus discourse.
Fees: Consult the fee structure.
