The pre-requisite for the course is ECON206 Statistics for Economists or its equiv-
alences. In addition, students are expected to have su¢ cient knowledge in calculus and linear
algebra. Students who took a statistics course other than the ECON206 must consult with me
before registering for this course. Although I wont prevent students who didnt take the ECON206
or its equivalence from taking my course, I am certain they will have hard time in my course. The
following questions may be considered a touchstone to see whether or not a student is prepared
for the course.
Course Level Recommendations
ISA offers course level recommendations in an effort to facilitate the determination of course levels by credential evaluators.We advice each institution to have their own credentials evaluator make the final decision regrading course levels.

Hours & Credits
Cheating includes: plagiarism in assignments; use of prohibited items during an exam
(both take-home and in-class); concealment of direct helps for an assignment from others than
the group members; any type of help from others for a take-home exam when collaboration is
not allowed, among other things. By writing his/her name on a quiz, an assignment, or a test, a
student is automatically pledging on his/her honor that he/she has not cheated and/or wont.
Means of communication
Main means of communication are the electronic bulletin board on the
KU Portal to Information Depository (the Portal hereafter) and/or the email address registered
in the Portal. Students are responsible to maintain a working email address on the Portal system.
Students MUST check the electronic bulletin board and their email frequently in order not to
miss out important notices.
The lectures are going to be done in English. Students can ask questions in Korean but
I will reply in English. Quizzes, assignments, and tests are going to be written in English but
students are free to use Korean to answer. Meetings out of class, for example the TAs Q/A
sessions or individual visits in my or TAs o¢ ce hours, may be held in Korean for those who are
not comfortable with English. In case I hold extra sessions out of class, I will in principle use
English but if all students who are in an extra session are uent in Korean then I may use Korean.
Students are free to use Korean when they email me but I will email in English if the content
concerns the entire students.
