# Basic Math for Principles of Economics: A Modular Approach

Irene Foster

Much of the material in this book was developed for Principles of Mathematics for Economics, an innovative new course at The George Washington University (GW) meant for students who don't feel prepared for a fast-paced introductory Microeconomics course their first semester of college. The course is meant for students weak in basic math, students not confident about their math skills, students not confident about taking economics, and students not having adequate study skills.
