課程概述

[For the complete info, please refer to http://homepage.ntu.edu.tw/~josephw/principles_micro_22F.htm ]

This is the introductory class for the principles of microeconomics. It serves as an introduction of economics to an audience that are not familiar with Calculus. Those who have took Calculus should consider taking (intermediate) microeconomics instead. One interesting feature of this class is there will be various classroom experiments throughout the semester, and students are expected to participate actively in them.

This is a course taught in English, and all assignments are in English. If you feel that you would be in a disadvantaged position, please take other principles classes instead. 

課程目標
The goal of this class is to introduce how economists think (without the math required for intermediate microeconomics), and, help you think like an economist! Specifically, we will see how economists observe real world phenomenon, build simplified models of reality, derive theories to provide policy advice, and test implications with empirical or experimental data.

說明
1. 
Classroom Experiment Participation 
15% 
In-class experiments happen weekly. If you earn more than 15%, you get a “tie-breaker” which bumps you up one letter grade (A to A+, A- to A, etc.) when you are the highest-scoring person in that letter grade. 
2. 
Homework 
3% 
You are required to submit assignments 7 days after they appear in class (on the last slide of each chapter). Not turning in one assignment costs 1% each (up to 3%). The TA will NOT grade it, so try it out yourself instead of copying answers.  
3. 
Exam-Giving Contest 
2% 
Propose in groups “Economics in the News” questions for the Midterm/Final exam (1% each); the best question will appear in the actual exam!  
4. 
Quizzes 
10% 
One quiz (5% each) before each exam as practice (10/12 and 12/9). 
5. 
Midterm Exam 
30% 
10/21, 10:20am-1:10pm in class. Submit request of absence in writing before 10am exam day (except for emergencies). Submit re-grading requests in writing within one week we return the exam, and the TA will re-grade your entire exam. So, think carefully before you ask! This course is taught in English, so all assignments are in English. Taiwan-specific material in Chinese would come with translations, though quality is not guaranteed.  
6. 
Final Exam 
40% 
12/16, 10:20am-1:10pm in class. Submit request of absence in writing before 10am exam day (except for emergencies). If you do better in the final than the midterm, it replaces the midterm (counts 70%).
