Hello everyone

I have created this blog to support a course that I teach to economics undergraduates at the University of Portsmouth called Statistics and Mathematics for Economics.

Students can get all the handouts for this course from the course web site which, of course, is to be updated as the course develops. However I shall also make use of this blog to provide a weekly update guiding you to other online material that you might find helpful and allowing interactive comments from you.

For a start if you feel that you need to revise basic maths you might go to the Resources in Maths for Economists section of the Higher Education Academy Economics Network website where you can find tutorial material and quizzes to help you fill in any gaps in your knowledge. You can set yourself an instant Remedial Maths test if you want first to see how you measure up.
