Intermediate Macroeconomics

Intermediate Macroeconomics builds on the principles that you learned in your introductory macroeconomics class and applies a more sophisticated level of analysis by using higher level math and more difficult concepts along with applications to real world data using databases such as the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis (FRED). Many students without a strong math background in calculus will struggle in an intermediate macroeconomic theory course. Therefore, I recommend reviewing calculus early before your course starts, particularly differential calculus and partial differentiation of multi-variable functions. Applications of differentiation to macroeconomic theory include the Solow Grow Model, steady states of output and capital per worker and production functions with their respective Marginal Products.
