Under unforeseen circumstances, where you are unable to take the exam on the scheduled day, you may petition to receive a makeup exam. To be given a makeup exam you must submit a typed letter with appropriate excuse documentation at least 2 weeks prior to the end of the semester. Your petition must satisfy one of the following: 1) illness or injury; 2) death, injury, or illness of an immediate family member; 3) unforeseen special circumstance that prevents you from taking the exam on the scheduled date. If you require a makeup exam and you fulfilled at least one of the requirements for a makeup exam, as described above, please make it known that you will need a makeup exam. All makeup exams will be administered toward the end of the semester at a date and time to be determined. The content of the exam will be comprehensive and encompass all material covered through readings, lectures, and homework assignments up to the date of the exam. No late quizzes or assignments will be accepted for credit.
Homework is meant to include both outside and in-class assignments. While working in groups is encouraged, you are responsible for completing and delivering on time your own homework assignment(s). Homework will be assigned during regular scheduled class meetings. No late assignments will be accepted for credit, but are encouraged to be completed nonetheless.

You are allowed a maximum two (2) opportunities to earn extra credit. Each will be worth a maximum of ten (10) points. The purpose of the extra credit is to enhance your understanding of economics. As such, you are encouraged to take an article from favorite current events publisher (WSJ, NYT, Economist, FT, etc.) and apply your microeconomic knowledge to the article. In order to receive full credit, per attempt, you must present to the class a five (5) minute presentation. Furthermore, to receive credit you must turn in a copy of the presentation and article on the day of the presentation. While extra credit is open to all, it is highly recommended that you take advantage of this opportunity early in the semester. I will limit the total number of presentations to a maximum of two (2) per class meeting up to November 16. No extra credit is given on the basis of intent; extra credit is given on the basis of actual presentation(s).
Class Attendance and Participation
Attendance in this course is measured by your on-time completion of homework. The last homework assignment and/or login to Blackboard will be used to determine your last date of attendance. Students are expected to attend all scheduled classes and may be dropped from the course for excessive absences. UTRGV’s attendance policy excuses students from attending class if they are participating in officially sponsored university activities, such as athletics; for observance of religious holy days; or for military service. Students should contact the instructor in advance of the excused absence and arrange to make up missed work or examinations.
The grade in this class will be a function of homework assignments, two (2) midterm exams, and one (1) final exam. All homework assignments will be weighted to account for 30%, each midterm exam 25%, and final exam 20% of final grade. The assignment of final grade will follow, a standard, grade distribution of 90-100%, “A” range, 80-89%, “B” range, 70-79%, “C” range, 60-69%, “D” range, 60%>, “F”.
