AP Economics

AP Economics is a college level, full year course designed to provide students with a thorough understanding of the principles of economics. AP Economics will emphasize the study of national income, economic performance measures, economic growth and international economics. The aim of AP Economics is to provide the student with a learning experience equivalent to that obtained in a typical college introduction level economics course. Students will learn to think like economists - to question, to evaluate marginal costs and marginal benefits, to explore the many ways that one action will cause secondary actions. Upon completion of this course, students will have the opportunity to pass two AP tests (micro and macroeconomic) and earn up to eight college credits. The course also meets the school’s and state’s financial planning requirement.

WHO SHOULD TAKE THIS COURSE?
Any student who is going to a four year college and would like to earn up to 8 elective credits in their general degree area. The course is especially valuable background for all students who are interested in majoring or minoring in business, finance, marketing, or accounting.

WHAT KNOWLEDGE WILL BE GAINED?
Students will gain an understanding of the macro economy: monetary policy (The FED), and fiscal policy (government taxing and spending), as well as microeconomic and international economic concepts.
