    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend the AP Government and AP Economics Block class because this class is taught very thoroughly by a teacher who understands and is passionate about the subject. Mr. Lyberger makes sure that students not only know the material, but also that they understand it. All of the class material is based on previous AP exams and AP standards, making the class very useful for preparing for the AP exam.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed hands-on demonstrations of concepts. For example, to demonstrate the law of diminishing marginal returns, Mr. Lyberger asked students to stand on a newspaper and make a paper chain with scissors, paper, and tape. The fixed resources were the scissors, paper, amount of land that the students could stand on (demonstrated by the newspaper), and tape. The variable resource was the number of students assembling the chain. As more students were asked to help assemble the paper chain, eventually the marginal per unit output decreased, demonstrating the law of diminishing marginal returns.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in the class, students must actively participate in class and ask questions to make sure that they fully understand concepts. Students should also complete their homework because it makes up a large portion of their grade.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Lyberger broke down the basics of microeconomics into smaller sections that made the information easy to learn and build upon. He also taught US government with a focus on instilling an appreciation for democracy and our government in his students.

    Course highlights:

    In my opinion, learning about different economic graphs and principles was very rewarding. Economics is very intuitive, and the graphs can tell you so much about different markets and firms. It was a great introduction to the world of economics.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just stay on top of things. You have to self-study a lot for government and make flash cards, but all you really need to do is pay attention during econ and honestly complete the FRQs and homework.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend just the Econ portion if I could, because I really learned a lot in that class. However, the Government portion is all self-study so good luck there.

    Course highlights:

    I, for one, will never forget the difference between a price floor and a price ceiling. But seriously, he has dry humor and a rare quick wit that I enjoyed seeing.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure that your Government/self-study/memorization knowledge is solid. Whereas students can go in during lunch or after school for Econ extra help, Government is a lot of studying, studying, studying.
