  • Prerequisites

    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 won’t prevent students who didn’t 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.

  • Overview

    Honor pledge
    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 won’t.

    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 TA’s Q/A
    sessions or individual visits in my or TA’s 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.
