    The course is very helpful in enhancing our mathematical skills.The creative videos are there which help us in understanding the concept and it almost give us the feel like that we are studying in a classroom. Whatsapp group is there where we get all the important information and makes it easier for us to understand everything. And we can solve our problems by asking teachers.

    Shubhangi B. Patil is taking this course right now, spending 5 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be easy.

    I really liked the course.the course is very well organised and upto the mark. Along with videos on mathematical economics, I also liked the last video on how to communicate in mooc discussion forum.The coordinator and her team must have put lot of efforts and made proper planning before starting this course. I am a assistant professor in economics always wanted to learn econometrics n mathematical economics, but could not get time , the foreign course on same were difficult to understand due to their language pronouciation, but this Indian course is very very good and easy to understand.looking forward to you for a series of such courses taking us from basic to advanced learning of the subject. Shikha mam, I have become your fan.thank you.

    This program has actually enlightened me to understand more about Mathematics. It gives meaning to every Maths expressions or equations. I'm a Maths student but have come to appreciate Maths more because of economics. I have now understood that every...
  • The course is really something to look upto,for its simplicity and design.Something which is not too hard hitting and heavy,easy to comprehend and engaging at the same time.

    Never thought that graduates too could learn in a fun way!It comes in small doses,to be absorbed and assimilated,one concept at a time.True wisdom is making something complex,as easy as possible,and the creators of the course have succeeded in doing so.While Maths and Economics are generally assumed(at least i do so)to be all complex stuff ,the course makes you believe you are going through a text book meant for a child,with pictures and games and lots of colors ,contrary to the black and white endless pages of equations and complex notations.

    Dear teachers, thank you so much for your constant attempt to make us learning mathematical economics. The course as of now has been quite helpful. You have made the concepts and theories easy to understand. It has been made so simple to understand that even a non-mathmatical background student can find easy to grasp after a little efforts. Mathmatics in economics these days are very essential, this could help us to express theories and model in concise form. We all believe that each and every student of economics need to analyse economic theory and models in mathematical form. They must also understand the theory very clearly. I believe your enthusiastic training will help everyone to achieve their goals. Thank you once again.

    I have taken other courses on the swayam platform last semester and currently am also taking other courses apart from ME. As a matter of sincerity, the presentation, the course content and the practicality of the course make it one of the best courses I have taken on swayam.

    Although, before the course started I anticipated a more mathematically rigorous course, because I have a background in mathematics with economics, that has not been the case.

    I really appreciate Sikha's authority over the subject matter and her presentation skills.

    It's a good course, and I will recommend for anyone who wants to have insight into mathematical economics.

    Thanks.

    This is Félix from Spain. I am economist, I have been teaching too so I can tell you that the course will offer you something I have not found anywhere talking about maths and economics: goes straight in a very fresh, easy and simple way to the core concepts....

    After completing five weeks I can say that it's a wonder. It is impossible to explain matrices in such a simle way. But our mentors did that. Hard work and lot of efforts are made by mentors. It was not an easy task but mam you made this so easy and...

    This course is easily understandable even for one who hails from humanities background like me. Maths was once a monster for me.. after I joined this course, I can now feel a better version of myself in dealing with mathematical economics. The creative explanation of this staff made this course more interesting. The surprises show their passion for the development of skills in the students. Thank you 'Swayam' for making me meet this amazing teachers.

    The course has given me new perspective to look at the subject of Mathematical Methods of Economics.

    The video lectures are made interesting by using different graphics and helps in engaging you with the subject without distraction.

    The thorough explanation of subject is helpful even if you are starting from scratch. With mathematical methods the basic concept of Economics is also explained as and when required so that you wont lack the idea when solving the problems.

    Thanks

    This is the best course I had seen till now. I would say that I was that type of person who always get afraid when the mathematics part came but this course has changed my perspective. It not only help me in developing my analytical and critical thinking skills but also now I am able to apply mathematical concepts in my real life. Now I say I started loving mathematical part since I am able to solve questions easily.

    Thank you for a wonderful course

    Dear Ma'am,
    I am Kala from bangalore. And I am working as a lecturer in pu college. I have joined this course by July 21st.
    Really I am enjoying my subject mam with maths combination.
    Your explanation are awesome with examples.
    I loved the demand, supply and price relationships with triangle love story. Set theory (restaurant example ).
    I can assure that whoever join this course will enjoy learning and will try to improve themselves.
    Thank you very mam

    Mam, This course is very useful to students of economics. You have explained and designed properly. I request you to suggest mathematical techniques with example which are employed for research paper in reputed journal. How can we solve the problems of indian or world economy through mathematical techniques. Please focus on application of derivative, integration, matrix,linear programming, input output in real life. Thank you for making this course to all.
