Go to MyEconLab for getting Quiz#10 in on time, it’s due tomorrow (Friday the 13 th !) I have fixed the way MEL reports points so they now make more sense (the defaults were different than the way I am doing things. Thanks to all of you who emailed me to point that out.) Total points assigned so far: 423, and so far average is only 65% Magic number 400. Total number of quiz points that will be available by the end: at least 650.

What students are saying

    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.
