Microeconomis I with mathematics


En ny schemafil är uppe. Den enda skillnaden är att räknestugorna för matten plockats bort. De ersätts av inspelade lösningar samt frågestunder online. Frågestunderna kommer att bli på fredagar och tid uppdateras så snart som möjligt.


Welcome to the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences
Here you find important information that will be useful before arriving to Sweden and while you are a student. • You need to have a student account in order to access Ladok Student at SLU and to sign up for exams. • You must be admitted and registered to attend the course. Unregistered students may NOT stay on the premises, for reasons of insurance. • You have to register yourself via Ladok Student. The self-registration is open 5 workdays before the start of the course and 3 days after. If you have been admitted to the course with conditions, you cannot register online and must contact the course leader who decides if you can still register. Only registered students can participate in the course and have access to, for example, Canvas. • If you want to receive text messages with updates for the course, for example in case of cancelled lectures or room changes, please check that the correct mobile number is in Ladok Student. • During the second week of the course there will be a mandatory control of attendance. If you don´t participate in the control you risk losing your place on the course. • If you need special support, please inform the course leader at the start of the course, so that special arrangements can be made for example at the examination. Certificates from Nais shall be displayed every time. • If you cancel the course, you should immediately notify the course leader via email, who in turn informs the educational administration to register a course break in Ladok. • You are automatically registered for the ordinary exams in Ladok Student. You can find your anonymous code in Ladok Student. Please note that you still have to register yourself for the re-exam in Ladok Student. This applies only to exams and re-exams within the department of economics. • Corrected exams can usually be collected Wednesdays from 12.30 - 14.30 in room D416 or D417 in Ulls Hus. During Covid-19 and the restrictions we ask you to e-mail us at for help with collecting exams. If you have any questions, please contact the administration by emailing

Prior knowledge

Knowledge equivalent to basic entry requirements and Ma C, Sh A.


The course aims at introducing basic microeconomic theory, as well as provide the students with mathematical tools for economic analysis.

After successful completion of the course, students will be able to:

- Describe and apply the mathematical functions that are most common in the economics sciences.
- Calculate derivatives as well as use and understand derivative methods to solve problems in economics, such as optimization.
- Use basic multivariate analysis.
- Use elementary algebra.
- Describe the microeconomic basic and fundamental assumptions, questions, theories and models.
- Verbally and graphically explain how consumers and firms behave in different types of markets, as well as how welfare is shared between actors in different types of markets, starting with the competitive market.
- Describe the meaning of different market failures such as collective goods, external effects and asymmetric information and why these failures arise.
- Use microeconomic theory to solve basic economic problems.


The course is conducted in the form of lectures and exercises, as well as a compulsory seminar.

The course consists of the following elements:

- Elemantary algebra
- Linear and nonlinear function
- Derivatives, basic and partial derivatives with applications, including optimization.
- Basic logarithms and integrals

- Basic consumer and producer theory
- Review of different types of markets, such as perfect competition, monopoly, monopolistic competition
- Basic welfare analysis for different types of markets, as well as analysis of the distribution of welfare when policy influences the market
- Market failures – why do market failures arise and how can we deal with the resulting problems?
- Game theory
- Risk and individuals’ relationship to risk management
- General equilibrium analysis where several markets are in long run equilibrium

Formats and requirements for examination

Passed exam.
Participation in a compulsory seminar.
  • If the student fails a test, the examiner may give the student a supplementary assignment, provided this is possible and there is reason to do so.
  • If the student has been granted special educational support because of a disability, the examiner has the right to offer the student an adapted test, or provide an alternative assessment.
  • If changes are made to this course syllabus, or if the course is closed, SLU shall decide on transitional rules for examination of students admitted under this syllabus but who have not yet passed the course.
  • For the examination of a degree project (independent project), the examiner may also allow the student to add supplemental information after the deadline. For more information on this, please refer to the regulations for education at Bachelor's and Master's level.

Other information

  • The right to take part in teaching and/or supervision only applies to the course date to which the student has been admitted and registered on.
  • If there are special reasons, the student may take part in course components that require compulsory attendance at a later date. For more information on this, please refer to the regulations for education at Bachelor's and Master's level.

Betygskriterier NA0182

Mikroekonomi 1 – med matematik

För betyget godkänt krävs följande:

1. Deltagande i obligatoriska moment (seminarium och experiment) eller inlämning av godkända restuppgifter som ges i undantagsfall efter överenskommelse.

2. Minst 60 procent på var och ett av tentamina i Matematik och Mikroekonomi.

Högre betyg Utöver dessa grundläggande krav för godkänt bestäms betyget av prestationen på tentorna. 75 procent krävs för betyg 4 och 90 procent krävs för betyg 5. Båda tentorna är på 100 poäng.

Mikroekonomin är 10 HP och matematiken är 5 HP. Resultatet på tentan i Mikroekonomi ger därför 2/3 av betyget och varje poäng på mikroekonomitentan ger 2 poäng i beräkningen till slutbetyget. Cred som erhållits under kursens gång får användas till första tentan och första omtentan. Cred kan maximalt ge 10 procent av kursbetyget.

Betygsgränserna för slutbetyg blir: 180 poäng för betyg 3, 225 poäng för betyg 4 och 270 poäng för betyg 5. Observera att ifall man klarar en tenta men missar den andra får man enbart skriva om den andra. Efter den första omtentan är högsta möjliga poäng på ytterligare skrivningar 74 procent.
