ECOA06H Introduction to Macroeconomics: A Mathematical Approach This course is one of the two companion courses in introductory economics (the other is ECMA04). They may be taken in any order (that is, you can take A06 even if you have not completed A04). There is one section of this course co-taught by two different professors: Professor Michael Krashinsky will be teaching the majority of the lectures, which take place on Mondays and Wednesdays 2:10 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.; Professor Iris Au will be delivering the rest of the lectures, will be organizing tutorials, will be handling the grades in the course, and will be holding office hours. In general, if you want help in the course, the first “line of defense” is the teaching assistants, all of whom have office hours and are happy to answer questions. If you feel that you need additional help, do not hesitate to e-mail either professor, or see Professor Au during her office hours. Both professors try to respond quickly to e-mail questions (but e-mail is awkward for complex questions, especially those that involve detailed mathematical notation). Because of the size of the class, you are unlikely to get lots of individual time from the professors, especially right before the exams. In general, then, you should bring your specific questions about the material to the t.a.’s, and talk to the professors about more general issues (grades, study strategies, future course selection, the general state of the economy, etc.). Professor Michael Krashinsky (we also have a Prof. Harry Krashinsky, so be careful not to get confused when you try to contact him by phone or e-mail) is the Chair of the Department of Management. His office is on the second floor of the Management Building - MW220. Because of his administrative duties, he cannot schedule normal office hours, but he is happy to see students whenever he is in, and you can always arrange to see him or make an appointment with his secretary Joy Forbes in the office next door to his, or by speaking to him after or before class.
