ECO 103, Course Documents

This page includes my class notes, practice problems, and answer keys for each topic in this course. It also indicates the assigned reading. The schedule is tentative and material may be added or deleted due to time constraints.

Students are strongly encouraged to keep up with the material. Much of the material in this course is cumulative and it may be very difficult to catch up if you fall significantly behind.

The practice problems are designed to gauge students’ readiness for examinations. If you are able to answer most of the practice problems, then you can expect to do well on exams. If you do not know where to begin the practice problems, then you should expect to do poorly on exams.

The course notes will inevitably include a few typos. These will be corrected and identified throughout the semester.
