Shubhangi 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.

The course is organized and well supplemented with e- text/notes, real life case studies, examples , videos & supplemented readings. I would say that the teachers are really working hard & has been assisting/ supporting us via whatsapp group. From very basic to very advanced , they have covered each topic relevant to Mathematical Economics. Also, the quality of videos is awesome with use of animation & visualization make it interactive & engaging.

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.

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...

This course was very useful and I learnt more about mathematical economics and its application under different concepts. I feel still more examples can be given for better understanding of the concepts. Regarding the matrix chapter little more understanding of the subject matter is needed especially for the beginners. The course contents are highly appreciable and I request you to go for the second part of this where you could cover other aspects of mathematical economics. I sincerely thank the government for arranging such type of course and I would prefer to join the second part also. A special word of thanks to the course coordinator for her efforts and involvement in her teachings and guidance. My heartfelt thanks to every individual who are part of this programme. Thank you so much.

First, I like to congratulate and appreciate the effort put on by Prof.Sikha Ahmad and her team. I have done two courses on mathematics and statistics in my UG and PG,(long back......) but since I have to reequip myself, I registered for this course, ..... and to tell the fact, it seemed like I am listening for the first time everything in a well organized method of teaching. The pedagogy followed is simply superb. The e-notes is easy to follow. I never thought that learning through on-line would be so enthusiastic. I have to thank Prof. Sikha Ahmad for her wonderful delivery in making me understand and realize the richness of Economics and Mathematics. I expect more like this from Prof. Sikha Ahmad. And I also want the thank Swayam for bringing this into everybody's home.
