Professor Charles L. Ballard Fall Semester, 2008 ECONOMICS 201, Sections 1 and 2 Requirements, Procedures, Etc. A. Meetings and Communications 1. Lectures The lectures for Section 1 will be given on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, from 10:20 a.m. to 11:10 a.m., in B108 Wells Hall. Section 2 is in the same classroom, and Section 2 follows immediately after Section 1, on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 11:30 a.m. to 12:20 p.m. The lectures will follow about the same pace in each section. It is recommended that you attend the lectures for the section for which you are officially enrolled. However, it will usually be possible for you to attend the lecture in the other section, if you have a schedule problem on a particular day. Except on exam days, you do not need to get my permission to attend the other section. Note, however, that students are expected to attend the section in which they are officially enrolled on the days of the midterm examinations , unless they make other arrangements in advance. I will usually arrive at the classroom about 10 or 15 minutes before the beginning of Section 1. I will usually be in the classroom for the entire break between Section 1 and Section 2. I will also usually stay in the classroom for 10 minutes or so after the end of Section 2. Also, a Graduate Teaching Assistant or Undergraduate Learning Assistant will be in the classroom most days, to help answering questions. Therefore, if you have questions that do not require a lengthy meeting, it may be best to see me or the Assistant before or after class. 2. The Importance of Attending Class I will not take attendance. However, statistical studies indicate that class attendance has a large effect on examination grades. If you attend class, you will have more practice in using the tools of microeconomic analysis. Economics is a thought process. If you come to class, you will be able to observe the thought process in action. Those who come to class will develop sharper thought processes, and this will reveal itself on the examinations. Therefore, I urge you very strongly to attend class, and to take good notes . Taking good notes is just as important as coming to class. If you don’t take notes, it is easier for your mind to wander. In addition, it is extremely difficult to remember everything if you just sit there and try to absorb the material without taking notes. Taking notes will give you a written record that can be reviewed later. If you miss a class, I urge you to get a set of notes from one of your classmates. After studying those notes, if you have questions, please address them to me or to one of the Teaching Assistants. 3. Classroom Etiquette a. Electronic Devices. Out of respect for your classmates (and for me), please turn off your cell phones , beepers, pagers, etc. In the very unusual event that it is urgently necessary for you to keep one of these devices turned on during class, please put it in its silent mode.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
