**Course Objectives:** | Using the analytical tools of calculus and matrix algebra, students will acquire an
understanding of the methods of comparative-statics analysis as applied to the
neoclassical theories of the firm and consumer behavior. Students will demonstrate
their knowledge through a series of problem sets, tests, and a final examination.
By the end of the course, students should be able to formulate and solve models of
the behavior of firms and consumers, using the methods of modern microeconomics. |
