# Mathematical Microeconomics 1

Students on the Scottish Graduate Programme in Economics MSc programme have to choose between Microeconomics 1 and Mathematical Microeconomics 1. You can watch a video to help you decide which one you should choose.

Mathematical Microeconomics 1 involves participating in

This means going to all lectures and tutorials of both courses, and doing both exams (four in all). There is some overlap between the two courses, so you do not need to do these bits twice. Specifically:- You will formally be enrolled in the course "Mathematical Microeconomics 1" instead of "Microeconomics 1".
- You should only do the Metric Spaces components of Advanced Mathematical Economics. This means you only have to come for the first portion (about 80 minutes) of each Advanced Mathematical Economics lecture. In other words, you don't have to watch the same video twice.
- I recommend that you go to all tutorials, both the Micro 1 and the mathematics tutorials. But you are welcome to go to just one or the other. You can bring your Micro 1 questions to the maths tutorial if you like.
- When you sit the Advanced Mathematical Economics exams, you will only be given the Part B questions (which are about metric spaces) to answer. The Part A material will be assessed in your other exam.
- The Microeconomics 1 exams counts for two thirds of your mark, where both the December and May exams count. The mathematics exams count for one third of your mark, but only your best exam counts. Thus, you do not need to attend both mathematics exams.

If you are interested in taking this course, please note:

- You are welcome to talk about your choice with me during my office hours.
*The first lecture is on Tuesday the 20th of September,*in the Davidson Lecture Theatre located in the Lister Learning and Teaching Centre, 5 Roxburgh Place*. Please don't miss it.*- The deadline for swapping between this course and Microeconomics 1 (in either direction) is Friday 21st of October. You can do this in the SGPE office.
- The course is a 30 credit course, which means that you will take 10 fewer credits of options courses in semester 2. This means you can not take this course if you enrol in the Finance or Econometrics degrees. You can switch degree if necessary.
