Econ001: General Information The syllabus gives you a class-by-class outline of the material I expect to cover. It also includes the dates for the on-line experiments, midterms and final in this course. This page includes some other information that will help you find your way in this course and answer some logistical and pedagogical questions. I. Blackboard During this course we will make extensive use of the web-based program Blackboard (abbreviated Bb) to distribute homework, refer you to additional readings, and give you feedback on your exam results and more. Please make sure you are able to log on to this course site by trying out the following page: https://courseweb.library.upenn.edu and following the link from there. You should have two sites for this course: a lecture-wide site and a recitation-specific site. If you don’t have both (at least within one week), you are not properly registered for this course and will not get a grade! II. Course Structure Each week we have lectures on Monday and Wednesday, plus a recitation session on either Thursday or Friday. You should attend both lectures and recitations, as there will be different material covered in each. Exam questions will assume you attended all lectures & recitations. III. Homework Assignments Weekly homework assignments will be posted on the lecture-wide Bb site under the “Assignments” tab. Each assignment includes: a. A set of 10 multiple-choice questions . This is a self-assessment tool that allows you to check if you understand the basic concepts. You may take these multiple times. b. A short answer section . This you should complete by your next recitation and hand in to your instructor. These are not graded, but you will get feedback on your performance. This also allows us to find out how students are doing. III. MyEconLab The textbook is accompanied by an on-line study guide & assignment package called MyEconLab. Up to 5 % of your grade is based on MyEconLab homework completion as discussed below. Instructions to log-on to MyEconLab will be given during class on September 15 th . Do not miss this introduction. MyEconLab keeps track of how you answer homework questions and, through its study plan feature, recommends additional questions to help you brush-up on topics where you need to do more work. Students are strongly encouraged to strengthen their grasp of the course material by working with MyEconLab's sample test and study plan features.

    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.
