Course Goals

This is a course which introduces students to the basic use of mathematics in the Policy and Planning Sciences, and to some of the most fundamental mathematical techniques we use. For some students, there will be absolutely nothing new here. Others may have large gaps. Please bear with us; the wide variety of backgrounds makes this an exceptionally hard course to teach.

The first half of the course will introduce the basic notions used in data analysis, including probability and construction of matrices.

See Links to Lecture Notes and Links to Homework Assignments for schedule information.
