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. Students analyze societal issues through the lens of economic reasoning, and develop skills that promote time management and intrinsic motivation. 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, and is recommended for juniors and seniors with strong mathematical reasoning skills and an interest in finance, business, or government.

“I have loved microeconomics this year. My teacher did an excellent job of keeping in contact with his students and having very applicable study materials available. He has also been committed to having the learning pathways for us so that we can choose how we would like to learn the material (reading, watching a video, etc).”
