Grading: The assignments and their values appear in the table below – Assignment Due % of Total Grade 6 Problem Sets Every other Monday 25% 6 Quizzes Every other Friday 55% 4 Essays Weeks 3, 6, 9, and 12 20%* Final Exam TBA Optional *Assignment #1 is worth 2%, #2 and #3 are both worth 4%, and #4 is worth 10%. Details on the assignments will be given in class. Late homework will not be accepted. All exams must be taken at the assigned time unless the student provides a valid, verifiable reason for failing to do so. Examples of valid excuses include significant illness or injury and death of a close relative. Verification must be provided by a responsible adult (parent, health care provider, etc.). Economics is the study of individual choice. I therefore have no attendance policy. However, if you choose not to attend class regularly, you will probably do very poorly on homework, quizzes and other assignments.

However, I will not tolerate cheating. Anyone found cheating on an exam or plagiarizing an essay will receive an “F” for this course.
