- The university has sent me an email suggesting I remind you that for public health reasons, the university is a 'scent free' environment. If you think this might affect you please see the information page at UBC risk management for information on what scent free means, and how to adjust to this if you need to.
- Assignment 2 You'll need to do this before the exam, so get it in to me by class time on the Tuesday after reading week.
There will be four assignments, due dates tba. You will need to hand in completed versions of the assignments, then you will be expected to correct your exam and resubmit it the week later. Assignments are worth 20% of the final mark. The midterm and final are each worth 40% of the final mark. The midterm will be held is tba.
To prepare for the course, make sure you understand the mathematics that is described in the Math Tutorial below. There is no required textbook for the course. Many of the lectures cover material that is covered in Preston McAfee's online text, but the readings that are listed (and will be listed) here are all that is required for the course. You can get the pdf version of McAfee's book at http://www.mcafee.cc/Introecon/IEA.pdf. There is a printed version with nicer graphs and additional problems that you can get from http://www.introecon.com, but you shouldn't need this, and we will only follow a small bit of the book.
- Math Preparation
- Basic Game Theory - the first part of the course covers basic game theory. It then proceeds to show you how this theory is used in some very well known economics problems.
