Spring 2014 – 8 Weeks, 2/18 - 4/10/2014
Economics 1 - Macroeconomic Principles - FULLY ONLINE SECTION: 1745
We will use the following TWO websites -- mandatory graded material is on BOTH:
Aplia – online text and problem sets See Syllabus or information posted in eCollege site regarding how to purchase
This class is conducted entirely via the Internet - including assignments, quizzes, final exam, and reading.
Information regarding this class is available on the SMC online schedule of classes:
Note: all deadlines are completely inflexible. No deadlines will be individually adjusted. In the event of a technical problem with one of the two websites above, deadlines may be adjusted in a uniform way for all students. There will be no adjustment for problems with any individual student’s computer or internet connection.
Aplia site access and etext of Principles of Microeconomics, 5th edition, by N.G. Mankiw, published by Cengage/South-Western
Students will purchase access to Aplia and an eText version directly from Aplia online (or from the bookstore, if you purchase an access card there be sure it is for the 5th edition of Principles of Microeconomics by Mankiw). A hardcopy is optional, but as 6th and 7th editions have been published, the 5th should be very inexpensive online. NOTE - Aplia is REQUIRED, so simply using a hardcopy without the Aplia/eText combination is not possible.
Aplia economics instructional software serves two connected functions in this class: i) a means to obtain an electronic version of the text, accessible online, and ii) for completion of required problem set assignments.
