Economics 162B Syllabus Fall 2009 2 REQUIREMENTS The most important requirements for the course are class attendance and completing the readings as assigned. While class attendance is not mandatory, it is important for your comprehension of the concepts of the course. Attendance and participation in discussion sections is also vital to your success in the course. The study of macroeconomics can be a difficult undertaking, and your understanding will be enhanced through different types of exposure to the material. For the same reasons, you should also make a strong attempt to keep up with the readings. If you do not, you may be overwhelmed at exam time. Besides attendance and completing the readings as assigned, the requirements for the course include two midterm exams, a final exam, and ten problem sets. The problem sets will be due approximately every week. (See the problem sets on the course home page or class schedule for due dates.) You are encouraged to work together on the problem sets, but you must each hand in your own paper. The lowest of the ten problem set grades will be dropped. Discussion sections will review the problem sets and answer keys each week, as well as address any questions you may have about the course material, lectures and upcoming problem sets. There will be no makeup exams offered throughout the semester without prior arrangement with the instructor. Be sure that you are able to take the final exam on the date and time indicated (see below). Late problem sets will not be accepted without prior permission. There are no exceptions to these rules.

    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.
