(Spring semester twice a
week ･ 4 credits , 2004 ) 
When you study
economics theoretically,
a certain amount of
mathematical knowledge
will be required as the
tools of analysis. By
the way, there must be
some students who
weren’t good at math in
their high school days.
These students may feel
confused when meeting
with “math” after
entering university. 
However, the knowledge
needed for studying in
the Department of
Economics is limited. To
put it clearly, you can
understand Economics,
which is studied in
university, as long as
you have basic knowledge
of “Differentiation”. 
In this class, we aim
to gain the knowledge of
mathematics which is
essential to economic
analysis,
differentiation, partial
differentiation, total
differentiation and so
on. I take into
consideration the fact
most students in the
Department of Economics
are not good with math,
so I give this lecture
as plainly as possible. 
The later half, we
study matching theory,
which is the process of
how demand and supply
meet in the market. In
this class, I take up
the most fundamental
matching model of
“oneto one” and study
the process of becoming
a male and female
couple. Moreover, we
study optimal strategy
to find better matching
and explain a
tendencyoflatemarriage
phenomenon, etc, by that
matching model.

Total score: 100points
(passing mark on this class
is more than 60 points)
・Assurance test + frequency
of attendance: 50 points.
・Examinations: 50points. 
Assurance
tests are held at the
beginning of every class as
a review of the previous
class. Examinations are held
during class hour in the
last two classes. The
schedule of the examination
isFirst time: July eighth
(Thursday) second period;
Second time: July twelfth
(Monday) second period. 
Be sure to take one of these
examinations. If you take
both of them, the higher
mark is recorded into your
grade. Also, attendance is
graded by deducting marks.
If you are absent from class
many times, you may lose all
of your attendance points.
Therefore please attend this
class as much as possible.
