#### Submission of Tutorial Work

We will tell you soon about the rules for submission of written work from tutorials. However,
notwithstanding any written rules and regulations about *submission*,
we strongly urge you to complete all written work yourself, even if you do not necessarily hand it in.

#### Tutorials

The tutorials in the Autumn Term are **not** mathematical exercises,
but are a mixture of different kinds of ways of reinforcing your understanding. You should look at the tutorial
**before** each relevant tutorial and come prepared to the tutorial. Tutorials are participatory exercises - free riders will not be tolerated!

Tutorials are to reinforce understanding and are NOT direct preparation for the examination.

This year we have been allocated just 4 tutorials in the Autumn term for this module. This is one less than the position
in 2012-2013. We will not be doing Tutorial 4 this year but you are encouraged to look at it. It
is similar in spirit to Tutorial 2, but has an added extra.
We have a tutorial every fortnight from week 4.

- Autumn Term Week 4: Tutorial 1: An allocation problem.
Plus answers to the problem prepared by the TFs.
- Autumn Term Week 6: Tutorial 2: Demand.
Plus answers to the problem prepared by the TFs.
- Autumn Term Week 8: Tutorial 3: Exchange.
Plus answers to the problem prepared by the TFs.
- Here is Tutorial 4: Minimisation of Costs - for those who are
intellectually curious.
Plus cost functions for the various technologies
prepared by the TFs.
- Autumn Term Week 10: Tutorial 5: Production possibility frontiers.
Plus answers to the problem prepared by the TFs.
You might also find useful some notes on the mathematical part of Tutorial 5 that have been kindly provided by John Bone.
And also a very nice presentation from Daniel Howdon
(though with a rather drunken first slide).
