Course Information


Microeconomics is the study of how rational (that is, utility-maximizing) agents behave. By analyzing economic situations through the lens of utility-maximizing agents, we will study the behavior of consumers, producing firms, and markets:

The language of instruction for this course is English.

Prerequisites: This course will use basic algebra (e.g. finding the intersection point of two lines) heavily. There will be some parts that will require solving a maximization problem with derivatives; I will review the mathematics needed.

Textbooks and Learning Resources

The primary textbook for the first half of the course is Microeconomics by Pindyck & Rubinfeld. Any recent edition will be sufficient for the course; there is little change in the core material between editions.
