Prof. Glenn Woroch
This course surveys the field of microeconomics at the intermediate level. It will cover the core
concepts of consumer and producer behavior, market equilibrium and welfare analysis as well as imperfect
competition and imperfect markets.
Prerequisites include an economic principles course (
, Economics 1, 2 or 3, or EE&P 1) and an
introductory calculus course (
Math 1A, 16A). It is not recommended that you take this course
simultaneously with the prerequisites.
While you are required to have calculus, I will use it as an alternative
approach to convey key concepts.
You can benefit from seeing the material through this other lens and you may
discover a use for all that calculus you studied.
Those who thirst for a more theoretical and more mathematical
treatment of the same topics covered in this course are encouraged to take Economics 101A.
Admission to the course will follow the standard TeleBears process.
As usual, if you are
unable to get an entry code, put your name on the waiting list.
Neither the instructor nor the GSIs can admit you
to the course.
Econ majors, or students who will very soon be majors, are given preference.
