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.

Economics and on top of that Mathematics - sounds quite difficult & demanding ! This course, however, is made in such a way which induces immense interest and curiosity in the subject of Economics and how Mathematics is used to study Economics. This course is be ideal for beginners & mid-intermediate level learners.

The organising team ( including the teacher-guide – Ms Sikha Ahmad ), has poured in much effort in delivering quality content through the optimum use of audio-visual tools, PDF notes and not to mention they've harnessed social media (Gmail & especially WhatsApp) exce…

Course content needs some improvement. Some ungraded assignment questions are not discussed in the material provided. References need to be provided in every etext. Use of familiar concepts, terms and definitions would be more helpful. Eg in case of demand and supply curves the convention is to measure price on y axis and quantity on X axis. The reverse presentation may be confusing for undergraduate students.

This course is very useful to develop an understanding of mathematical base for economics concept in very easy way. The major feature of this course is it's contents and methodology, it is designed in such a way that non mathematical learner also can relate with real phenomenon.

So I ll highly recommend this course for economics learner .
