# Undergraduate Game Theory - PS/Ec 172 - Winter 2018

**Instructor.** Omer
Tamuz, 213 Baxter. Office hours are Tuesdays from 11am to noon. Students are
strongly encouraged to meet the instructor for help with any
of the
assignments. The Campuswire
page is a good place to post questions that may interest
others. You will need a code to join the class there.

**Teaching assistants.**

**Lectures.** Tuesdays and Thursdays, 1:00pm to 2:30pm, in Baxter
Lecture Hall.

**Lecture notes.**
Complete lecture
notes are available for this course. Note that this is not a
textbook, but the actual notes used to give the lectures. A part
of them is based on Osborne and Rubinstein, which is an excellent
textbook. It is not, however, required for the class.

**Curriculum.** The curriculum can be found in the table of
contents of
the
lecture notes. It is subject to change, and in particular the
last lectures might be on topics that are not yet covered in the
lecture notes.

**Grading.** The final grade will consist of 35% homework
assignments, 30% midterm, and 35% final exam.

**Problem sets.** Sets are due every Thursday by
1pm, and are to be submitted in class. **Late submissions
will not be accepted, but the lowest score will be
dropped.** Collaboration on homework is encouraged, but
individually written solutions are required. Also, please name all
collaborators and sources of information on each assignment; any
such named source may be used. And
don't plagiarize!

**Midterm.** The midterm exam was
due in class on Thursday, November
8^{th}. Here is the
distribution of bonus points students asked for. No bonus was
given, as the average number of points requested was about 4.9.

**Final.** The final exam was due on
December 13^{th}. Here is the
distribution of bonus points students asked for. No bonus was
given, as the average number of points requested was about 4.2.

Please take three hours to complete this
exam. Collaboration is not allowed, except on the bonus question,
which you can discuss with others, given that this discussion takes
place in public conversations on Campuswire. Also, there is no time limit
for completing the bonus question, and you can read it (on the last
page of the exam) before starting the three hour clock.

You may consult the lecture notes, your own notes or any textbook, but
not solutions to previous exams. There is no need to prove any
statements that you make, unless this is explicitly requested (e.g.,
"explain..."), in which case you must provide an answer that is no
longer than one paragraph. The exam is due at 1pm on Thursday, December
13th, and is to be handed in at the instructor's
office, Baxter 213, from 10am that day.

**FERPA waiver.** If you want to be able to pick up your
graded assignments in class (rather than with the TAs) then
please fill out and send to the instructor
the FERPA waiver form.
