Study Labs

Lab sessions are free and all School of Public Policy students are encouraged to attend.

Economics/Econometrics, Macroeconomics, Statistics (Methods), and Math Review Study Lab sessions are held several times a week by selected graduate assistants and review areas and topics examined by the core economics classes. Sessions are ideal for reviewing class material and improving skills in economic analysis. They are free and all School of Public Policy students are encouraged to attend.

The purpose of the sessions is to review some math and algebra skills that are used in the core economics and research methods classes. The final session will also cover some topics from calculus (simple and partial derivatives), which may be new to some of you.

*Please bring written material and questions during scheduled lab hours. Written material can be in draft form. Assistance will include tops for macro-level editing, recommendations on developing coherent organization, and guidelines for improving writing and style. 

FAQ

Q. Do I have to attend?
A. Yes. Attendance will be taken.

Q. But do I really have to attend? I'm taking Prof. Sexton's class, not Prof. Prieger's.
A. Yes. Regardless of which microeconomics class you take, you will need these mathematical tools for the core macroeconomics class next semester (at least).

Q. But do I really have to attend? I already know all this math.
A. It would still be good to come, if for no other reason to help your fellow students who are not as mathematically prepared as you are.
