This page emphasizes the practical concepts of calculus, and is intended to provide a new context for the student already familiar with much of the material. The emphasis is on how calculus can actually be used outside of the classroom, and how the language of calculus is important in many other disciplines. It features articles for download, on topics from exponential growth and decay to discontinuities, vector fields and differential equations. All of the articles include extensive notes, examples, and figures. This resource is part of the Teaching Quantitative Skills in the Geosciences collection. http://serc.carleton.edu/quantskills/

What is economics and why should you spend your time learning it? After all, there are other disciplines you could be studying, and other ways you could be spending your time. As the Bring it Home feature just mentioned, making choices is at the heart of what economists study, and your decision to take this course is as much an economic decision as anything else.

Economics is probably not what you think it is. It is not primarily about money or finance. It is not primarily about business. It is not mathematics. What is it then? It is both a subject area and a way of viewing the world.
