Textbook Draft   by McElroy and Politis   Chapman and Hall.
Structure of the course The course will be based on student presentations of assigned chapters and HW problems. Attendance is crucial, as well as preparing ahead to make a good presentation (e.g., preparing simple notes).
Students should form groups (with 3 students per group); the groups will be the units making the in-class presentations. Each group will be called to make a presentation several times per quarter; a student will be selected (at random) to represent the group in the presentation.
When called upon to make a presentation, a student can decline (or be absent) at most 1-2 times per quarter without a negative repercussion on his/her final grade.
If a student representing the group declines (or is absent), another student from the same group can be called to fill in---so that the group as a whole is not penalized.
HW problems will be assigned every Friday, and collected 11 days later in Tuesday's session. During the week, HW problems will be presented (and discussed) in-class by the students.
Students are encouraged to study in groups but each student must submit their own HW (hand-written) to get credit.
