Coronavirus Update for Econ 244, Spring 2020
José Víctor Ríos Rull

Adjustments to the Course as of now

Homeworks and Tests

  • We will continue with the planned grading system (unless the University tells me otherwise).
  • The Second Homework due date is delayed one week to April 1st. I will post it in Canvas shortly.
  • The Second Midterm is also delayed one week to April 6. I will give you the details of how to implement it as soon as we sort them out.
  • The Third Homework is due on its scheduled time.
  • The Third Midterm will occur on its scheduled date, although the details of the format still have to be worked out.


  • I will post taped lectures on Canvas for asynchronous access as the semester progresses. I will post them before the lecture times.
  • Most lectures will be broken down in 10-15 minute increments. Students are expected to watch these lectures.
  • I will then be available for the last 20 minutes or so (more if needed) of the lecture time (i.e. from 3:00 pm of the teaching days) to answer questions about the lecture.

Office Hours and Contact

  • We (The TA, Coby, and I) will email about with the info for a zoom meeting during office hours. This will allow us to talk in real time.
  • Any other issues can be dealt with by email, I think.
