Course Materials The following are required for this course: Mankiw et al., Principles of Microeconomics, Fourth Canadian Edition. (Thomson, 2008) *Includes free Study Guide for Principles of Microeconomics Avenue access. http://avenue.mcmaster.ca The following is optional: . i-Clicker (many of you will have one for other courses) Grading Details Assignments 10% of your Final Grade There will be 10 assignments to be done on the web on the course website. You must submit 5 assignments. You are encouraged to attempt all 10 assignments – if you do, your best 5 out of your submitted assignments will be counted toward your final grade. Each counted assignment is worth 2% of your final grade, for a total of 10% of your final grade based on the assignment component. Consider the 5 assignments that do not count toward your final grade as “free passes” – should you miss an assignment, that assignment won’t count against you. If you miss more than 5 assignments for medical or compassionate reasons approved by your faculty, your grade on the final exam will also serve as your grade on the missed assignment. EXAMPLES: You miss an assignment for medical reasons – you still have 9 remaining assignments from which your best 5 will be selected. You miss 6 assignments for medical reasons- the 4 you completed plus the grade on your final exam (out of 2%) will make up your assignment grade allocation. IMPORTANT: All assignments are due on a Friday evening by 8:00pm . The software does not accept late assignments. If you try to submit an assignment after the due date and time, it will be given a zero grade. If you still have a free pass available, the missed assignment will not count towards your grade. The assignment due dates are:
