I NTRODUCTION TO M ICROECONOMIC A NALYSIS Economics 101 Section 04 Fall 2011 Instructor: David Pieper SFSU Email: [email protected] This syllabus specifies the course requirements and expectations. Read it carefully. If you have any questions regarding any aspect of this syllabus, ask for clarification. You are responsible for understanding these requirements and expectations. Class Schedule : August 23 to December 8, 2011. Final Exam on December 13, 2011. Section 04 (Schedule 40682): Tuesdays and Thursdays 3:35 – 4:50 pm Room: 226 Burk Hall Office Hours : Thursdays, 2:30 – 3:30 pm, HSS 150 If you need to contact me outside of class or office hours, email is the best method. I will check it at least once per day. Mailbox: In Economics Department office, HSS 142 Required Text : Paul Krugman and Robin Wells, Microeconomics . 2 nd edition. New York: Worth, 2009. Optional books: Elizabeth Sawyer Kelly, Study Guide to accompany Microeconomics Second Edition. Krugman/Wells, New York: Worth, 2009. - Provides additional review material and practice exercises . Grady Klein and Yoram Bauman, The Cartoon Introduction to Economics, Volume One: Microeconomics. New York: Hill and Wang, 2010. - An entertaining way to review the material in the main textbook. Textbooks are available at SFSU Bookstore and many other sources. Rental copies are also available. You do not need any of the extra add-on packages--just the book. The SFSU bookstore sells a package including both the textbook and the study guide for a lower price than the textbook alone. The study guide is optional, and you might find the textbook alone cheaper at another source. If you are also taking a section of Macroeconomics (Econ 100) that uses the Macroeconomics text by Krugman/Wells you can buy both books together in one volume called Economics . (Some chapters are the same in both books and only appear once in the combined book.) One copy of the textbook will be on reserve at the library. In addition, one copy of the Macroeconomics textbook will be on reserve at the library. Chapters 1 to 3 are the same in both books. Our Microeconomics Chapter 5 is Chapter 4 in the Macroeconomics book and our Chapter 8 is Chapter 5 in the Macroeconomics book. Therefore, early in the semester you can use the Macroeconomics book if necessary for these chapters. This could be especially useful if you order the textbook and you need to access the library copy before your own copy arrives. Textbook website: http://bcs.worthpublishers.com/krugmanwellsmicro2/ - contains review materials, exercises, etc. Many homework assignments will come from the textbook, so you will need access to a copy of the 2 nd edition in order to complete the class. The tests will primarily focus on material covered in lecture, but you should use the textbook for understanding and review. This textbook is written very clearly.

    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.
