ECON 200 Principles of Microeconomics Fall, 2010 Professor Robert M. Schwab Tydings 4106B 301-405-3487 [email protected] Office Hours: Tuesday and Thursday, 2:00-3:30 Course Description ECON 200 is the microeconomics half of a two-semester introductory course on the principles of economics. ECON 201 addresses macroeconomics. Although some Maryland students take macroeconomics before microeconomics, we recommend taking microeconomics first. I will assume that this is your first course in economics. Lectures will be given on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Students will also attend a discussion section that meets for one hour each week. The discussion sections are a very important part of the course. The TA’s will use the discussion sections to present some material I do not cover in lecture, review the examinations and problem sets, answer questions about material in the text and lectures, and present problems that will help you prepare for the exams. Discussion sections will begin Wednesday, September 8. Blackboard Everyone in the class should have access to the Blackboard site ECON200 ALL SECTIONS Fall 2010: Principles of Micro-Economics. In addition, students in sections 2101-2114 should have access to ECON200 Sec - 21xx Fall 2010: Principles of Micro-Economics and students in sections 2201-2214 should have access to ECON200 Sec - 22XX Fall 2010: Principles of Micro-Economics. I will put all course material (such as this syllabus, old exams, PowerPoint slides, and announcements) on ECON200 ALL SECTIONS Fall 2010: Principles of Micro-Economics. You will need to go to the other Blackboard site to review your grades on exams. Required Text The text for the class is Principles of Microeconomics, Fifth Edition by N. Gregory Mankiw. You will also need to purchase access to the Aplia web site in order to complete the assigned problem sets.
