The instructor's educational
philosophy is one of interactiveness based on lectures, readings, dialogues,
examinations, Internet, videos, web sites and writings.
The instructor challenges and
engages each learner in what is referred to as disputatious learning to
encourage the lively exploration of ideas, issues, and contradictions. He
believes that the application of theoretical concepts is equally important as
the visualization of these concepts.

The course grade for students will be based on the overall average of homework and tests taken during the course in accordance with the weighting of the various requirements as stated in the syllabus.
All final exams in all School of Business courses will be comprehensive and will be closed book and closed notes. They will constitute 30% of the total course grade and will not be a take-home exam. They will be completed during the test week in the period designated by the registrar or by the Proctor in the case online courses. If calculators are allowed, they will not be multifunctional electronic devices that include features such as: phones, cameras, instant messaging, pagers, and so forth. Electronic Computers will not be allowed on final exams unless an exception is made by the Dean of the School of Business.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
Any classroom conduct that disrupts
the learning environment in the opinion of the instructor, will not be
tolerated. Please do not wear hats in class. Be sure to
silence your cell phone.
Also remember that computers make
writing and revising much easier and more productive. Students must
recognize though that technology can also cause problems. Printers
run out of ink and hard drive crash. Students must be responsible
for planning ahead and meeting deadlines in spite of technology. Be
sure to save copies of your work to disk, hard drive, and print out paper
copies for backup purposes.
Each week, except for exam weeks, we
will cover two to three chapters from our text, Macroeconomics by
Gordon. Homework assignment noted later. The following is a
