20050203 Econ 113 Fall 2005 First Midterm--Tuesday February 15
A few notes on the first midterm...
The midterm will be a mix of identifications (one sentence response) and short answers (one paragraph response). There will be no multiple-choice questions. There will be no extended essays.
The purpose of this midterm is twofold:
- To police the reading--make sure that students are actually doing the textbook readings and the article readings.
- To provide the lecturer with a reality check: what are students actually retaining from the lectures, the sections, and the readings?
The split of material will be roughly 40% lecture, 30% textbook (chapters 1-12), and 30% article readings. (Note, however, that there is considerable overlap.)
(We'll announce which textbook chapters to focus on next week.)
- Remember to bring your bluebooks!
- Everyone is expected to take this midterm...
