Final Prep:

**I had promised to have the problem set posted on Thursday afteroon, and I did.  Blogger then went down for some reason and they erased all of Thursday's new post.  Anyway they had said they would restore the posts and they haven't.  I apologize, this is kind of terrible timing.

Midterm #2

Problem set

Answers to the first sample final.  We will over over both tests on Tuesday May 17th

There is some overlap with the homework, but I wanted to give you a complete final so you can get a sense of what they are like.  Obviously there are no questions about the readings.

Final Chapters: 10, 12, 13, 14 (money), 15 ,15 appendix, and readings.

  1. why is your hw, insanely hard. I have asked 2 high school economics teachers for help, and they both had no idea what was going on. Ive answered almost every question, however i am missing 2 questions, because no one understands them, and now your rules say if i skip those, i end up with a zero????? This is just plain wrong.
