Unformatted text preview: lecture notes will be available on the class web page by 5pm the
night before lecture (email me if you don’t see them). I will annotate the notes in lecture. The annotated
notes are not available outside of class. If you miss class and want the lecture notes, ask a fellow
classmate or your TA for a copy of the notes. SECTION: There are weekly discussion sections for this course. You are not required to attend section,
but in section the TAs will cover the kinds of problems you are likely to see on exams. Each week, the
problems your TAs will cover will be posted on the class web page, and you are encouraged to try these
problems on your own before coming to section. Answers to the problems will not be posted until shortly
before each examination.
EXAMS: There will be two midterms and a cumulative final. Dates are not negotiable.
Midterm 1: Friday, October 19th, in class
Midterm 2: Wednesday, November 14th, in class
Final Exam: Friday, December 14th, 8-11:00am, location TBA
GRADES: Homework (20%), Midterm 1 (20%), Midterm 2 (20%), Final (40%). Grades for the course
will be curved.
1. If you have a documented disability, please come to talk to me as soon as possible so that I can
make suitable accommodations for you. If you believe that you have a disability and desire
accommodation, please register with the Office for Students with Disabilities.
2. Academic dishonesty will not be tolerated. Students are expected to do their own work, as
outlined in the UCSD Policy on Integrity of Scholarship:
http://senate.ucsd.edu/manual/appendices/appendix2.pdf. All suspected cases of academic
dishonesty will be reported to the Academic Integrity Coordinator. Students found guilty of
academic dishonesty will earn a failing grade for the course. They also may be suspended from
3. If you need to miss a midterm for a verifiable medical/legal/sports reason, your midterm grade
will be your grade on the final. Failure to notify me promptly that you must miss a midterm will
result in a zero grade for that midterm. Unexcused absences will also result in a zero.
4. If you arrive late to an exam, I will allow you to take the exam in the time that remains as long as
no one has turned in his/ her exam and left the room. Once a classmate has turned in his/her
exam, you will earn a zero on the test if you arrive late.
5. UCSD now has automated waitlists. If you have any questions regarding adding the class, please
refer to Triton Link or contact the undergraduate advisors in Sequoyah Hall 245.
6. With the permission of the TA, you may attend any discussion section and go to any of the TA’s
7. Midterms and exams that you do not pick up will be kept for one quarter following the end of the
course and then thrown away (at which point your scores cannot be disputed).
READING: Below is a list of the reading for the course. You are only responsible for sections of the
textbook that we cover in class. Chapters refer to the UCSD custom edition of the textbook. You are
expected to keep up with the reading on your own.
Supply and Demand
5 (including appendix)
Perfectly Competitive Supply
Efficiency, Exchange & The Invisible Hand
Supplemental Material TIPS TO DOING WELL: The best way to do well in this class is to complete the weekly homework
assignments and section questions. It is easy to lull yourself into thinking you understand the material
better than you do, and completing practice problems is a good reality check. Coming to class is also
important, especially since we will sometimes cover topics that are not covered in the reading....
