Go to your Canvas page to complete the following exercise:


Reference Resource List

1. Credo Reference Database

2. New Dictionary of the History of Ideas

3. Wikipedia

4. Access Science

5. QuickSearch (Research Starter)

Reference resources like those listed above are excellent places to start research by getting an overview of a topic and developing ideas about how to narrow that topic, and by providing a bibliography of relevant resources on the topic. Keep in mind that because they provide an overview, they are generally not directly used within a research paper.

Partner with someone in class, each using a different resource from those listed above and explore topic a topic related to game theory or economics.

1. After perusing the sources, with your partner, discuss which research you believe to be most helpful and why.

2. On your own, try to come up with at least two different research ideas related to economics and/or game theory. What area of the topic most interests you? If you had to frame your topic as a question you’d like to explore, how might you word it?
