How much homework is in Microeconomics?

We estimate that the course workload will take 10+ hours per week. During a typical week in, students complete the following coursework:

  • 60–90 minutes of live class instruction
  • Video lecture (10–20 minutes)
  • 1–2 chapters textbook reading (20–30 pages per chapter)
  • Discussion forum (one post and one reply)
  • Grading workshop assignments (from the textbook)
  • Quiz

Throughout the semester, students complete a midterm and final exam. Students also submit weekly critical thinking exercises, which have proven successful in preparing for the AP exam.
