    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I always thought the concept of economics would be extremely difficult and confusing, however this course was able to simply break down topics and relate them to a real world setting. One of the few courses that I believe will genuinely be utilized in day to day life.

    Course highlights:

    I learned basically how the concept of money works. This branches into the larger scale of macro economics to the smaller scale of micro economics. It helped me realized why supply and demand play such a vital role in the business world.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is definitely important to attend all lectures because a lot of exam questions come from the topics that were covered in class. In addition, reading Reff's website is very useful because his models make the topics easier to visualize.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class puts into perspective how we deal with economics in our everyday lives. Mr. Lemoine creates a fun learning environment, and makes the class engaging despite having 150+ students in the class.

    Course highlights:

    The importance of supply and demand can really shape out a market. Finding the equilibrium price for a product means to find the middle-ground between the cost and demand. When we compare one product to another, whether it's the price, quality, or demand, we use the equilibrium as our basic knowledge to compare the two.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Attend the classes. Some classes you can get away with to showing up for, and only studying the slides presented in class, but Mr. Lemoine speaks in depth about his lectures, making it essential to attend all classes. Even missing only a few classes will set you back, so being attentive and visiting the T.A's office hours is crucial.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Charity-Joy creates an understanding of the general concepts of economic thinking but conveys it in an interesting way by incorporating group work, class competitions and fun extra credit opportunities.

    Course highlights:

    I now understand the behind the scenes when it comes to looking at a product. This entire world is connected together in some way. This class gave me an appreciation of teamwork and life.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Have an open mind and personality. You can't go through this course on your own so be open to meeting people as this is the economic way as well.
