The course will explain how individual consumers and producers together determine the prices and quantities of goods available in the marketplace. We will investigate the underlying incentives of consumers to buy goods and of firms to produce products that satisfy consumer demand. In addition, we'll look at how government can help or hinder market efficiency. The textbook for the course is Microeconomics for Economics 251 , published by Pearson Custom Publishing (ISBN: 0558569021 / 9780558569020 ). The publisher has created an online resource site for this class, called CourseCompass, which you will use for completing several homework assignments. An e-text is included with the online site as well. All homework will be submitted and graded online. Evaluation: Your grade in Econ 251 will be determined by your performance on three midterm exams, one final exam, and online homework assignments. Homework : Fourteen homework assignments will be provided online at www.coursecompass.com . The average of your best 12 homework scores will be multiplied by the 60 total homework points to determine your homework grade. For example, if the average score of your best 12 assignments is 94%, you would receive (0.94 x 60) = 56.4 out of the 60 possible points for homework. The online homework system will allow you multiple attempts for each homework problem and will provide feedback based on the answers you submit. Given the multiple attempts, the average score on each assignment is usually close to 100%.
