    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is a very interesting course, which can be hard to say about economics. The teacher would actively engage the class and use real world examples as a way to teach us the different trends in the economy and how to accurately predict shifts in the overall economy. The teacher never lectured about the subject, rather he would give us practice questions for the AP exam at the start of class and go over why the answers were correct. The teacher was very good at his job and it was easy to tell that he cared about the subject and out success.

    Course highlights:

    Some highlights of the course were the jokes that the teacher made concerning the current economic standing of the United States and other countries as well as the great connections that the teacher made with what was being taught to the current state of affairs in the US economy. I learned a great deal during this semester long course in high school. This course taught me how the economist analyze the different charts and graphs looking for trends and try to predict what will happen in the future. I learned about what consumers look for when going to get a loan from the bank, and how the banks operate in trying to get the largest profit from the interest rates. Overall I learned a lot about the US economy on the macro scale and look forward to pursuing further studies in the future.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Some advice I would give to students considering this course is to try and learn some of the basics of economics before entering the course because a lot of what gets taught at the AP level includes information that the instruction may expect you to already know. Also, memorize the different graphs and the possible ways the graphs can be altered because those are a third of the AP exam given in May on the essay portion on the test. Knowing the graphs and how they work is a big art of what separates a successful economics student from an unsuccessful one.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Economics is something every student needs to have. It teaches you how you should spend and invest money. It's truly a real-world class because economics is what keeps our governmental system working. This class teaches the deep-seated issues in government and how it can be potentially fix but how it also comes with draw backs. I recommend that every student takes this class so that they can truly understand our government and the strategic monetary decisions they make.

    Course highlights:

    Throughout Econ you study Supply & Demand, different types of businesses, fiscal policies, monetary policies, stocks, and even how to save and spend. When I first got into Economics I thought that money made the world go around, but that wasn’t the case. Money forces us to make decisions making us the controllers of how our economic system works. I learned that as every day consumers we choose how much something will cost and how much of it will be produced. Businesses look directly at our choices to find information on what people want. Economics also teaches you monetary balance. Not just saving but investing. Allowing your money to work for you is one of the key components in being financially successful. Without taking economics I would’ve never known how interest rates and inflation affects the value of our money.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take this class seriously. It isn't an easy A. After listening to lectures read over the chapter. If it doesn't make sense to you go to your teacher sit down and truly get one-on-one help from them that's what your teacher is there for.

    It's just basic economics, but learning how demand and supply can be affected is interesting.

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    A new teacher will be teaching this course, but the material is the same.
