Abstract

In recent years, the quantitative skills required of economics students have increased significantly.  Students often experience difficulty in making the transition from their mathematics courses to the use of mathematics in their economics courses.  Symbolic computation programs are mathematical tools that can potentially smooth this transition.  This paper illustrates a few ways in which one symbolic computation program, Mathematica, has been used in the undergraduate economics curriculum.
