The utilization of mathematics in reality has constantlyentranced me.
Arithmetic goes about as a foundation from which economicalaspects and economics itself advances, with such skills such as differentiationbeing used to find the elasticity coefficient. The application of mathematicsin the real world has always fascinated me; perhaps so because of T.W. Korner’s”The Pleasure of Counting”. The book greatly inspired me to improvemy critical thinking and analytical skills, and in doing so, urged me to applythose ideologies to specialized fields such as economics and finance.Having studied all four branches of the mathematics syllabus,I can truthfully say my interest was most peaked by pure mathematics;specifically calculus. The way two dimensional questions can be progressed tofurther dimensions and can then be extended to that of an imaginary realm,seized me and led me to believe that such a principle can be applied toeconomics as well; a straightforward problem can become more involved bydifferent factors being added, such as consumer confidence.
The challenge of studying economics and further mathematicsat A Levels has confirmed my passion for it and has cemented my desire to studythem on a higher level. Economics is a fundamental aspect of life, furtherillustrated by the ongoing economic crisis. The effects of government policy intrying to achieve its economic objectives became apparent to me over the years.As a result, I have tried to study and practice it beyond the constraints ofthe classroom. There have been variable topics; with cases I discoveredespecially captivating being “Urban areas and Economic Development”and “Probability and linear Algebra “There have been variable topics;with cases I discovered especially captivating being “Urban areas andEconomic Development” and “Probability and linear Algebra “These have given me advantageous experiences and have furthered my desire tostudy mathematics and economics at university level.
