Textbook: Microeconomics by Boyes and Melvin, 8th edition 2. Study Guide: To accompany Boyes and Melvin COURSE OBJECTIVE: Economics is a powerful tool for understanding human behavior. The study of economics is the study of the choices that must be made because resources are scarce and have alternative uses. The cost of any action is the value of that action’s alternative. Microeconomics will focus on the activities of individual decision makers as they go about the business of life. At the semester’s end you will have a better understanding of how markets work, how prices are determined, how markets react to shortages and surpluses, why profits are important, and how government is involved in the economy. Classroom attendance is strongly recommended. Much of the material is quite analytical and the average student needs to devote many hours outside of class to successfully complete the course. The exams are designed to challenge even the best of students. They require logic and problem solving ability. Memorization will be of no value in this course. The ability to read and understand graphs is basic. ECONOMICS LAB: To assist you in your study of economics, an economics laboratory for this class will be available 15 hours each week. The Lab will be staffed with Teaching Assistants and student mentors who will assist you with your homework, exam preparation and your study of economics in general. The lab hours and locations will be posted on the Electronic Blackboard. HOMEWORK
