Welcome to ECON 201, Principles of Macroeconomics!
Listen to this story from NPR, and see if you can illustrate the story with supply & demand curves.
The course website/syllabus explains the most important things you need to know for this course. To that end, here is a scavenger hunt to help you learn those things. The answers can be found from the website.
o How do you send Prof. Greenlaw an anonymous comment?
o What do the blue boxes show on the Visual Syllabus?
o How many weeks until the first exam?
o What grade will you get for Class Participation if you miss a noticeable amount of class?
o The second required reading for Topic 10 is from where?
o Extra Credit: Who is the lead content expert on your textbook?
Answers to the scavenger hunt should be emailed to me by class time this Friday. Your score will be credited to your homework & class participation grade.
Some of you asked for additional help with supply and demand problems. Here are some samples to work through. When you’re ready, we can go over them together. Just let me know when you want to do that.
I don’t grade the exams in this course on a curve. You get what you get.
However, I do give you the option of earning some points back. By tomorrow, you will have your exams returned and you will know what the correct answers are for each problem you got wrong. I would like you figure out why the right answer was right and then come to my office to explain it to me. If you do so, I will give you half a point back on your test score for every incorrect answer that you explain correctly.
The deadline for this is next Friday. That gives you one week to see me. Do not wait until the last minute. I will not have enough office hours to see everyone on the last day, so if you are smart, you should do this this early!
