Grading criteria is same as ECON1000, lots of options to boost grade. Just watch lecture videos - 10 marks, iclicker quizzes during zoom meeting - 20 marks, MEL quizzes - 15 marks. I would absolutely recommend Prof. Cohen, amazing lectures and helpful prof. PASS sessions helped me a lot. They also have review Q/A PASS sessions before final exam.

Great prof but he had a bit of a hard time navigating online/virtual learning. I heard he is better in-person. Nonetheless, he was a good prof. His explanation videos are very convenient and help a lot. Definitely recommend taking him as a prof.

Never taken economics in high school and I took the course as an electives. Best decision I made was to pick Avi as my prof and his methods of explaining are very understandable and the content is very interesting when he teaches it. The quizzes make sure that you have understood the content and you would be better off buying the textbook, flextext

By far one of the best professors at this University. I won't lie and say this is an easy course because there is a lot of material you have to know, but Professor Cohen is absolutely amazing at teaching the material nd explaining difficult concepts. 10/10 -Find test banks, past tests for exams you'd be surprised how much they can help during exams

He explains concepts very clearly. I never regretted attending the lectures and found them helpful. If you take his section, just make sure to study the FlexText and go to every PASS session and you should be able to easily end up with an A+. I also recommend attending his lectures.

He is an amazing professor. I'm not an economics student and I was able to get a b+ in the online class for macro. Now I'm in micro online and my heart is at ease knowing I will be taught by someone who is not only intelligent, but an amazing lecturer (not dry even online). He is a leading example of how professors should be. Exams are very fair.<3

Comment:
Cohen is a great speaker because he presents the often very dry material of the course in an interesting and easy to understand way with real life examples. He uploads recordings of his lectures on moodle and his tests are mostly based on what he talks about in class. You still need to read the textbook for the weekly quizzes on myeconlab though.

Probably my favorite prof at York. He speaks loud and clear, and knows how to make the course material easy to understand. He is very passionate about what he teaches and is always glad to help anyone who needs it. You can tell that he authentically wants his students to learn economics because there is so much to take out of it.
