I am looking forward to our first meeting on the evening of October 1, which is less than one week away.
There are a couple of assignments.
- Required Reading: Chapter 1 of the textbook.
- Problem Set: The first “problem set” is the Student Information Form, located at http://economics.garven.com/studentinformation.doc (this will be graded; the grade will be 100 if you turn it in on time, 0 otherwise, and will count toward the problem set component of the grading schedule listed on the syllabus (see the third item on the http://economics.garven.com/syllabus.htm webpage)). The due date for this “problem set” is Wednesday, September 30. Anyway, please fill this form out and email it to email@example.com so that I can have a chance to learn about all of you prior to our first class meeting (see http://econblog.garven.com/about or visit my website at http://www.garven.com if you care to learn about me).
I recommend that you look over the course website as well as the course blogsite between now and our first class meeting. The lecture note for our first class meeting is available from the course website (under item 1 on the http://economics.garven.com/lecture_notes webpage). The course syllabus is located at http://economics.garven.com/syllabus.htm (or if you prefer a PDF version, from here). The schedule for reading assignments and exams is located at http://economics.garven.com/readings. The problem set schedule is located at http://economics.garven.com/problem_sets. Since I plan to rely upon the blogsite for communication outside of class, I recommend that you follow it regularly by subscribing to its RSS feed, its email feed, or to its Twitter page (note that if you prefer to use Twitter, you need to first setup your own Twitter account!).
