As we develop a methodology for solving problems, I hope you will also develop a sense of intuition about economic issues. I am not too interested in formalism and memorization. To accurately test your knowledge, I will ask you some questions which may be perceived as requiring memorization, but most importantly I want you to show that you have truly learned the material and understand why it is important. As you study, you should always ask yourself questions that begin with the word “ Why” to gauge your comprehension (“How” questions are important too). Successful students are inquisitive. I will ask a lot of questions during class, and I hope you will respond. Please do not hesitate to ask questions either during or after class. Reading chapters ahead of time will greatly contribute to your success in class. I cannot stress this strongly enough. While I cannot promise to have all the answers, I can assure you that issues you feel are important will be addressed. Most importantly, if you feel that you are having difficulty with the class, please let me know as soon as possible. Do not wait until it’s too late. Use the office hours or make an appointment to see me (or send me questions via e-mail). You may also drop by my office for extra help any time you feel it is necessary, but you might want to call first to make sure I’m in. Final tip: Purchase a 3-ring binder for this course - there are numerous handouts.
