Syllabus ECON200: Principles of Microeconomics Summer 2017 Instructor: Aurora Stephany Class time: MW 3:30-5:20 pm SMI 407 Office Hours : Fridays, 1:30 pm Email: [email protected] Website: Course description: In this course you will learn the fundamentals of economics as a way of thinking about problems of resource allocation, balance of incentives, and decision- making. This will help you understand why firms and individual make certain decisions, and why in some cases there are ways to improve welfare. You will find that the economic way of thinking extends to situations you might not have expected, such as environmental issues, marriage decisions, drug use, among many others. This is a somewhat demanding course and you must make sure to start working right away. Many of the concepts we will learn require some time to grasp, and you will find that trying to learn them in a short time before exams is nearly impossible. Textbook: We will use Principles of Microeconomics by Greg Mankiw. Any edition of the book is fine, there is no need to purchase the latest one Grade: your grade will depend on class activities (30%), two midterm exams (20% each) and a final exam (30%). Class participation will be rewarded with extra credit

    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.

    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.
