Introduction “The ideas of economists … are more powerful than is commonly understood. Indeed the world is ruled by little else.” John Maynard Keynes

Welcome to ECON1000 Introductory Economics and the School of Economics and Finance. Introductory Economics (ECON1000) is a one semester course that offers an introductory flavour of economics. The course aims to cover key economic concepts of both microeconomics and macroeconomics in an Australian as well as international context. The syllabus incorporates the following five (5) concepts in microeconomics: the economic way of thinking; demand and supply; elasticity; market efficiency; behavioural economics and asymmetric information. In addition, the syllabus covers the following five (5) topics in macroeconomics: economic growth (GDP), unemployment and inflation; the business cycle and aggregate demand/supply; monetary policy; fiscal policy; and exchange rates. The syllabus emphasises the application of economic theory to real-world events.

Economics is part of our everyday lives, when we’re studying, shopping, dealing with customers or finding a place to live. Economics effects everything in our lives—what we earn, how we work, where we learn, what we eat; the list goes on. An understanding of economics is very important in an uncertain world, where market forces have such a significant influence on our lives. Any student undertaking a course in commerce or business at the undergraduate level requires an understanding of economics—how markets work, the price system, macroeconomic activity, the global economy, economic policy, and so on. A good grasp of introductory principles of economics is crucial if we, as student collaborators and critical social-ecological observers, are to make informed judgements about solving real-world problems. Dearest student, enjoy your study-life time in 2018 (to 2019) with ECON1000! 🙂

Unit Learning Outcomes All graduates of Curtin University achieve a set of nine Graduate Attributes during their course of study. These inform an employer that, through your studies, you have acquired discipline knowledge and a range of other skills and attributes which employers would value in a professional setting. Each unit in your course addresses the Graduate Attributes through a clearly identified set of learning outcomes. They form a vital part in the process referred to as assurance of learning. The learning outcomes notify you of what you are expected to know, understand or be able to do in order to be successful in this unit. Each assessment for this unit is carefully designed to test your knowledge of one or more of the unit learning outcomes. On successfully completing all of the assessments you will have achieved all of these learning outcomes.

Your course has been designed so that on graduating you will have achieved all of Curtin’s Graduate Attributes through the assurance of learning processes in each unit.

Curtin’s Graduate Attributes

Learning Activities You should listen to one lecture series per week (~70 to 90 minutes) and attend one tutorial class i.e. ‘workshop’ per week (~44 to 50 minutes).

l The lectures cover the syllabus material. Lecture slides and other relevant learning resources are available on Blackboard (Bb). The lectures will summarise the relevant material covered in the textbook and will help focus your learning on the important concepts of the course. The workshop exercises and quizzes, article analysis and the final exam will be based on the material covered in the lectures.

l The tutorials (also referred to as ‘workshops’) are a key opportunity you will have for regular group discussion of topics covered in the lectures and textbook. Tutorials should provide you with a useful guide as to your understanding of the course material. Students are encouraged to participate in each tutorial class (i.e. ‘workshop’) by preparing answers to the set questions for each workshop. The ECON1000 (2018) Student Tutorial Guide and the questions set out for each workshop (in the teaching weeks) are available on Bb. Attend regularly and be prepared to contribute in some positive way to the discussion. This means reading the prescribed text, revising your lecture notes and preparing answers to the tutorial questions and problems. You should ask your tutor to explain any parts of the course that you have not understood or found difficult.

You should expect to devote at least 3-4 hours per teaching week to reading your textbook and lecture notes and preparing answers to the tutorial discussion questions. Each week you may be asked by your tutor to explain an answer to the class, or use the whiteboard to illustrate an answer. In economics, it is important to communicate effectively in writing using economic theory and to engage confidently in interpersonal communication in tutorials.

You might be able to locate a second-hand hard copy of the prescribed text from a previous semester. As an alternative to the hard copy (printed) version, there is an electronic version of the text, i.e. an eText type version of the custom textbook prescribed for this course (at a lower cost). Students can buy Introductory Economics ECON1000 (Custom Edition VitalSource eText) by going to: The “essential” textbook for ECON1000 Introductory Economics in 2018 says on the front cover, compiled by ‘Andrew John Brennan’. However, the correct way to reference the text in a bibliography is as follows:

Hubbard, Glenn, Anne Garnett, Phil Lewis, and Anthony O’Brien, 2015. Introductory Economics (Custom Edition), 1st edn, Sydney, NSW: Pearson Australia. In 2018, ‘MyEconLab’ is free to use for all students of ECON1000: certain key features of MyEconLab (i.e. the “Study Plan” and “Assignments”) are freely available. MyEconLab is a useful online resource for students to gain extra knowledge from the contents of the textbook via the system’s adaptive learning technologies. MyEconLab is required for one of your assessments (see the Assessment schedule in the Unit Outline). As an ECON1000 Singapore student in Tri3A 2018, you will need to see Blackboard for instructions in PPTX on how to register for MyEconLab.

Other resources

The Learning, Engagement and International Services (LEIS) team at the library are piloting an online support initiative for first year (undergraduate students) at Curtin in 2018 called Studiosity. See Studiosity provides personalised, online study help via two tools – Connect Live and Writing Feedback to a broad range of discipline areas. It will be made accessible via Blackboard (Bb) in all first year units (in all locations and modes of study)—i.e. that includes Introductory Economics. Studiosity may be useful to some extent when working on your Article Analysis. Studiosity (formerly known as YourTutor) enables all students enrolled in 1st-year units access to 24/7 online constructive feedback to develop their academic skills. It provides personalised feedback on small portions of text but does not proofread or edit. Students can also utilise the “Connect Live” function for guidance on core skills areas such as maths, science. All guidance and feedback comes from advisors who are experts in their fields, and are carefully selected and rigorously trained. Access for students to Studiosity is via Blackboard desktop and mobile.
