Why take Principles of Microeconomics online?
This is a first course in microeconomics, the branch of economics that deals with individual decision makers such as consumers and firms. The course develops the basic analytical tools used by economists to study economic decisions and market behavior. These are used to examine consumption, production, market outcomes under perfect competition, monopoly and oligopoly as well as the effects of government policies.
Homework and quizzes assigned in this course should help you become comfortable with quantitative ideas and at ease in applying quantitative methods to economics. They should help you reason with numbers, data, and graphs, including being able to make predictions based on this type of information. This includes being able to use these quantitative skills to make decisions and solve problems in everyday life, thereby making mathematics and mathematical proficiency a powerful tool for understanding individual and firm behaviors.
You have 3 to 9 months to complete 17 lessons, which include 3 proctored exams. The 14 non-exam lessons are designed to provide you a basic understanding of the decisions made by consumers and firms. In those lessons you need to complete a required reading from the textbook, view pre-recorded lectures that discuss the required reading, complete homework problems, and complete a 10 minute quiz with 6 questions.
