Macroeconomics studies the aggregate behaviour of the economy. This course provides an introduction to the economic analysis of key macroeconomic variables such as output, employment, inflation, interest rates and exchange rates. The important elements of the course include measurement of macroeconomic variables, the development of models and theories to explain the behaviour of macroeconomic variables, the use of empirical evidence in evaluating different models, and the role of government policy in seeking to influence macroeconomic outcomes.
The course will provide students with a framework for understanding the workings of the whole economy and the various interactions among households, business and governments.

It is a required course for anyone undertaking an economics major. Students are introduced to the study of economics via Microeconomics 1 ECON which studies decision making by individuals and firms and examines the role of governments in seeking to ensure the efficient operation of markets. Macroeconomics 1 builds on these microeconomic concepts and models to study economic decisions and outcomes and the role of government in the national and international economy.
A pass in Microeconomics 1 is a prerequisite for enrolment in Macroeconomics 1. With the exception of Microeconomics 1, no previous study of economics is assumed. Macroeconomics 1 is a prerequisite for all upper-year macroeconomics courses and most other upper-level economics courses offered by the School of Economics i. In addition, the concepts, models and approaches developed in Microeconomics 1 and Macroeconomics 1 provide the foundation for business studies in accounting, finance, marketing and management.
The Course Learning Outcomes CLOs are what you should be able to demonstrate by the end of this course, if you participate fully in learning activities and successfully complete the assessment items. CLOs also contribute to your achievement of the Program Learning Outcomes PLOswhich are developed across the duration of a program for all coursework students in the Business School. Locate and interpret macroeconomic data; and identify and explain important macroeconomic concepts.
Analyse simple macroeconomic economic models, and use these models to explain and interpret behaviour of key macroeconomic variables. Identify current economic issues and debates, then apply simple macroeconomic models to analyse and interpret policy issues. Construct written work which is logically and professionally presented, and then communicate ideas in a succinct and clear manner. The Lecturer-in-Charge Stanley Cho is responsible for the overall direction and academic content of the course.
You can also contact your lecturer about academic matters. The lecturers in Macroeconomics 1 will hold regular office hours throughout the Term. Questions about administrative matters on tutorials, such as your allocation to a tutorial group or your marks during the session should be directed to the Course Administrator, Neil Hart.
Email is the recommended means of initial communication with the teaching staff for this course. Academic staff will generally reply to email within 48 hours except on weekends. You should use your UNSW email to contact academics and include your full name and student number in the email. We encourage you to provide course feedback and comments via email, if you wish. Please note that academics have no advance notice of the date and time of the exam.
Students can vary their own enrolment including switching lecture streams or tutorials via myUNSW until the end of Week 1. In general, most other student enrolment requests should be directed to The Nucleus: Student Hub formerly Student Central.
These include enrolment in full courses or tutorials, course timetable clashes, waiving prerequisites for any course, transfer-of-credit international exchange, transfer to UNSW, cross-institutional study, etc. Where appropriate, the request will be passed to the School Office for approval before processing. Note that enrolment changes are rarely considered after Week 2 classes have taken place. In the weeks leading up to final exams, the School will be providing Pitstop, an opportunity for consultation with tutors as you revise for the exams.
Details of Pitstop locations and hours for this course will be advised closer to the time.Forums New posts Search forums. What's new New posts New resources New profile posts Latest activity.

Multivariate calculus is covered next, with applications to consumer theory and the theory of the firm. Finally, unconstrained and constrained optimization is covered, including techniques such as the Lagrange multiplier and Jacobian matrices.
Applications and examples are drawn from practical problems in economics and business. Throughout the course, an emphasis is placed on combining intuition with rigor--the math is used to provide a more rigorous analysis of the intuitive understanding students acquired in their principles of economics courses.

I'll get the ball rolling. Higher first year maths final exam marks go up quite a bit not sure about 1X51 though as they are run differently completely. First year higher Physics changes a tiny bit. COMP in second sem is just a raw mark.
