Macroeconomics Students Learn Supply & Demand
Mrs.Lane's AP Macroeconomics class is well underway in learning the basics of supply and demand. In just the first two weeks, students have been in a race to see who can make the most imaginary cheeseburgers and blizzards, they have performed odd jobs to the best of their ability and created a Production Possibilities Curve (PPC) for it, and created imaginary countries that produce imaginary goods and compare them to each other and make choices on specialization. It is going to be a great semester!
