This class was tough.
Course Overview:
Provides a strong understanding of Micro economic concepts in a manageable way. Focuses (in order) upon consumer theory and utility maximization, producer theory and profit maximization, and game theory and risk.
Course highlights:
Began assigning mathematical principles to those learned in introductory economics classes, which is especially important when deciding if economics is the right discipline for you to study.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Get a buddy to work on problems and talk about your justification for answers. Homework is more about learning to make economic arguments using math as a tool, not just going through the motions and getting the right answer. Also, learn how to budget your time well during exams and get comfortable completing simpler types of math quickly and accurately come test time.
