Econ Majors and Math

<p>I'm a econ major at a 2 year school at the moment. I'm currently taking Cal 1 and doing well. My question is, should I go all up to Cal 3? And, should I learn all of the proofs presented to me, or just learn how to do it? (Good example is Chain Rule, proof vs. real usage). </p>

<p>Thanks in advance.</p>

<p>If you plan on going to grad school in economics, the answer is yes. You should plan on taking the following math courses as a minimum:
Calc I, II, and III
Differential Equations
Linear Algebra
Real Analysis
Probability Theory
Mathematical Statistics</p>

<p>Linear Algebra (usually) and Real Analysis are both proof-heavy courses, so getting some practice in proof-writing is helpful.</p>

<p>If you do not plan to get a PhD in economics, calc I will certainly suffice. However, if you have an aptitude for calculus, and you like it, taking additional calculus will certainly help you further develop your analytical skills. If you can tell me your specific career plans, I can offer more specific advice. Hope this helps!</p>

<p>Well I plan to get a MBA. I finished Calc I with an A and will take Calc II next semester. Any advice you can give me for Calc II?</p>
