Final Exam Period (April 6-30)
The test, midterm, and final exam are cumulative; i.e., they cover all the material from the
beginning of the course. They are on Friday mornings to accommodate the size of the class;
students must contact me in the first two weeks of class if they have a conflict. Students who
miss the test or midterm must email me a scanned copy of a medical document within one week
of the exam to write a make-up from 10:00 AM –12:00 Noon on Friday, March 29, which covers
the same material as the midterm even if you only missed the test. Note that this make-up is after
the drop-date and that you don’t get your exam back, though you may look at it.
The test has 30 multiple choice questions. The midterm and the final have multiple choice and
written – diagrams, calculations, and explanations – questions.
LECTURES and TUTORIALS
I recommend the textbook (any edition will do) but sell a package of Lecture Notes and Problem
Sets with solutions at cost ($10) in class. These problem sets are not graded but provide
exercises necessary to clarify the economic models presented in the lectures and tested on exams.
Teaching Assistants provide tutorials every week to clarify the problem sets and also hold office
hours for individual consultation on problems. I will post the schedule and you can attend
whenever you wish, though you will soon find that some times are better for you than others.
You must use only writing implements (pens, rulers, etc.) and non-programmable
calculators (no other electronic devices), begin the exam with everyone else, and stop exactly
when time is up. Any transgression is an academic offense and subject to sanction. You must fill
in the scantrons (multiple choice) in pencil. I prefer that you write the written part of the midterm
in pen but this can be awkward. However, I will only look at complaints on exams written in pen.
Make sure that you correctly fill in your ID on the scantron and exam paper or lose 1 mark.
We will hand the tests/midterms back one week after the exam. Miss that and you won’t be
able to get your exam since I won’t have them during office hours. I will post the answers
scheme to the exams on Quercus at that point. Please go through the answers carefully to see if
the TAs (or I) made any mistake in marking since I will only accept requests for remarking
during my office hours and the class breaks during the following week (i.e., second week after
