The Final Exam will be held completely online in two parts
 Let me start by saying, any evidence of collaboration between students on these exams will result in an “F” for the course. Please take this seriously.
 The “takehome” part of the exam will take place on Wednesday, April 28th through Thursday, April 29th for 24 hours starting on the 28th. If you have any extenuating circumstances regarding this date, you must let me know ahead of time.
 The “takehome” part is openbook, but you should do much of your studying beforehand
 The “inclass” part will be online and take place during our regular exam hours of Monday, May 3rd
 Section 3 (the 10:30AM section) will be 8:00AM10:00AM
 Section 4 (the 11:45AM section) will be from 10:30AM12:30PM
 https://www.jmu.edu/registrar/wm_library/1211_exam_schedule.pdf
 The “inclass” part will require you to be online with Zoom on and a camera on
 The “inclass” part is hard copy opennote, but do not expect to have time to explore, search for, or research the answers
 If you think you will need additional time, you MUST contact me before hand to make some arrangements regarding these times.
First, look at the midterm study guide. All that material is fair game for the exam
 This is a comprehensive final exam
 The exam will probably be about 50% new material, and 50% from before the midterm
 The grade will be about 1/3 take home exam and 2/3 online exam
Some materials to study
 Review Canvas Quizzes (CQ): Bold indicates you should take another look
 Note: DO NOT submit any remaining attempts these assignments, as it will convert any grade you had previously received to a zero and thus negatively impact your grade.

 How could you use government policy (tax or spending) to eliminate any output gaps?
 The Economic Fluctuations model
 How to sketch out the AD line. What are the axes? Why does the line slope downward?
 What is the IA line? Why will it tend to return to the value it should be at in the longrun?
 What is the Fed’s role in pushing the economy back to this longrun inflation rate?
 How does a change in government spending or taxation impact the AD line in the shortrun, and what do we expect in the longrun?
