Principles of Economics: Macro is an introduction to macroeconomic analysis. It exposes students to the basic analysis of income, employment, and price level. In addition, the course presents applications of macroeconomic theory including its use in evaluating and forming public policy. As a part of the Econ 2 team during the Winter 2017 quarter, I was responsible for creating homework and exam problems, holding office hours, and teaching two hour-long sections consisting of 30+ students each every week.
