Important Notes

Once class starts all communication will take place within Canvas. Additionally, if you are using a web access email account or any email account with high spam settings, it is likely that you might not receive some initial emails that detail important class information.

Student Learning Outcomes (i.e. what will you learn)

  1. Illustrate economic perspective and analysis when responding to choices.

Course Policies


Online classes are available and make your education experience more convenient. However, this is not a self pace, learn on your own class. This is a 3 unit college level course which translate to roughly 10 - 12 hours a week in lecture and homework. 

Drop Policy

The quality of your contributions determines your grade for this portion of the class. Contribution of quality thoughts and analysis are imperative to succeed in this portion of grading. As stated in the Class Schedule: “Normal progress and successful completion of scholastic work depends upon regular attendance. Students are expected to attend all classes and laboratories for which they are registered. Instructors set an attendance policy for each class and it is the student’s responsibility to know and comply with each one.”

If you cannot participate in class, my expectation is you will communicate with me via e-mail, complete with reason for missing class. This may not excuse an absence but it does provide a context for your absence when I complete the evaluation of this portion of the course. In addition to points earned for contribution in class discussion, any absence from the course with failure to notification the instructor by email will be dropped from the class after two weeks of absence / non participation.

In addition students that fail to complete the required Introduction Discussion will be dropped by the second week of class.

Academic Honesty:

You are expected to complete your own assignments and exams. If you are caught cheating, both you and the other students involved will receive an F.

What do we mean by “cheating?”

  • Sharing answers with another student to complete assignments or exams
  • Submitting someone else files as your own
  • Submitting either your assignments or another student’s files from a previous semester
  • Helping someone or receiving help on an exam
  • Getting someone else to take your exams

What happens if you cheat?

Both you and the other students involved will receive an F on the assignment, exam, and/or for the entire course.
