AP® Microeconomics is a course that examines how individuals (such as consumers and producers) make decisions and how these decisions affect our everyday lives. Topics discussed include the forces of supply and demand, costs of production, consumer choice, and behavioral economics, amongst others. Throughout the course, students examine various models that are used to conceptualize how our economy operates and explore the role that government plays in a given economy. As an online, college-level course, significant emphasis is placed on independent work and individual accountability. Students complete collaborative projects, group discussions, problem sets, quizzes, and tests. The curriculum is developed to prepare students for the AP® Microeconomics examination in May. Strong mathematical reasoning skills and an interest in finance, business, or government aid students in this course. AP® Microeconomics is recommended for juniors and seniors.
