Class Experience

I am passionate about helping students understand economics concepts, since they are so relevant in the human experience.  My approach is to get students thinking and discussing how economics relates to their lives through relevant examples.  
Students will have a weekly quiz and a weekly homework assignment, which will reinforce and expand upon the classroom discussions.  Assignments mostly involve reflection questions to be answered in a few sentences.  Additional work or reading is provided, but is optional for student enrichment (not graded).  There is a final quiz and final assignment that are due after the final live class. 
Required text:  Whatever Happened to Penny Candy, 3rd edition or later (used or new), By Richard Maybury.
I will provide additional online links or electronic copies of texts/passages free of charge.

Every class is recorded and I post the recording for viewing after each class.  Therefore, students can catch up if they happen to miss the live session. 
Student work will be graded (the weekly quiz and assignment) and a final grade (percentage system) will be issued. 
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
