Course Overview:
ECON 201 with Corey Van de Waal beefs up ECON 101 to include more mathematical calculations and less definitions. Models are expanded upon, and simple game theory is introduced at the very end of the course. Students begin to solve more complex questions about production, competition (monopoly, duopoly) and equilibrium.
Course highlights:
The game theory section is particularly interesting. Van de Waal explains basic games such as the prisoner's dilemma in depth and begins to touch upon decision trees.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Do all of Corey's homework questions as you go in the course, as in the beginning of each class he will go over some homework questions to clarify any misunderstandings you may have. He will also provide answers in his office hours.
