|Forma i warunki zaliczenia:||
(tylko po angielsku) A scale in mind for what percent of points translates into what grade: 100-91 = 5.0; 80-81 = 4.5; 80-71 = 4.0; 70-61 = 3.5; 60-51 = 3.0. After each midterm I will try to promptly provide you with an idea of where you stand so far in the course.
You are allowed not to participate in 2 classes. If you miss more than 2 classes, you either lose points for your final grade or you meet me to talk about the covered material.
You will receive approximately 12 take-home assignments (homeworks) over the course of the semester. They will be designed to prepare you for questions that you will see on the midterm tests. You may come to the class with no homework twice. The rest will count towards your final grade.
Midterm Exams: 20% each
You will also take two midterm exams during the class periods. Like the homework, they will consist of problem solving. They will not be a repeat of homework problems or of things you heard in the lecture. Instead, they will typically require you to use the techniques and concepts you have learned in a different way, or to handle an extension or twist of a problem you have already seen.
Final Exam: 40%
The final exam will feature multiple-choice, true-false, and fill in the blanks questions. The final will be comprehensive, and will be more involving than the midterms. It will occur at the regularly scheduled time for a final for this time slot.
|Metody sprawdzania i kryteria oceny efektów kształcenia uzyskanych przez studentów:||
(tylko po angielsku) Sometime near the end of the course, students should be asked to complete an assessment of learning assignment. The assignment should count (modestly) towards their grade. The assignment should be designed to assess students’ knowledge of basic terminology and concepts (SBS1), problem-solving skills (SBS2), and the evaluation of relevant evidence (SBS5) and arguments and implicit assumptions (SBS3). The assignment will conclude with a brief policy recommendation (SBS4-written).
Additionally, instructors should make a record of each student’s class participation (SBS4-oral).
Instructors should document the results of the assessments (physical papers, scans, or canvas records; records of participation) with the help of the department administrative assistant. They will then be relayed to the department committee charged with coordinating the assessments, who will arrange for outcomes to be entered into the canvas system for easy report generation and archiving.

(tylko po angielsku) |
Microeconomics in context uses individual behavior of the consumer and firm to explain economic outcomes. The course begins with an overview of economies and economic modeling, which uses as a fundamental assumption the notion of bounded rationality. Students next study opportunity cost and its relationship to tradeoffs. The fundamental concepts are then integrated into the study of markets and its components of supply and demand. This basic model is used throughout the term to determine the outcomes of economic policy. Throughout the course, emphasis is given to the application of economic concepts and tools through problem solving.
