Econ 275 - Fall 1992 - Lesson #1 - 9/1/92 - leson1a.275 Administative Only 1 200 level course is allowed in the major. Course Outline and Syllabus Note that the syllabus is tentative . Will reschedule as needed except the papers and the test--those are fixed. Grading. Tests will be in class on the days indicated. Combination of problems.

Also there will be a short personal evaluation made of the project giving you a chance to express differences or augmentations of the group project along with a personal insights gained in the process.
