Welcome, 2015 Fall Microeconomics Students!

September 7, 2015 Leave a comment

I always love the start of a new semester. Our first class begins on September 23. New students can get off to a good start in the first class by:

  1. Getting a paper notebook (preferred) or good electronic means of taking notes (not photos!).
  2. Bringing your textbook, Greg Mankiw’s Principles of Microeconomics, to class.
  3. Read the first chapter. There will be a quiz at the conclusion of the first day of class, and it will count toward your final course grade. 

This is a special time of your life, with a unique opportunity to focus of learning. If you were a poor student in the past, now is your chance to change. I expect all my students to be serious, professional in their approach to their university career, and hard-working.

Of course, I can’t make any student be serious, professional or hard-working–but I can promise you that you will enjoy my class much more if you take that approach. Try it!
