This class was tough.
I would recommend this class with professor Orr because she takes this otherwise difficult subject and breaks it down into the simplest form in order to help her students understand better. Professor Orr provided many ways of practicing the subject and always answered questions if anyone had any. Professor Orr gave us study guides and tried her best to make ECON a enjoyable subject to learn about. She genuinely cared whether he students passed or failed and she did everything in her power to make sure each and every student had equal opportunity to succeed.
The highlights of this course, to me, were preparing for every test and working on the Stock Market Project. Every test was not particularly difficult, although it really distinguished the students who studied and the students who did not. More than anything, Professor Orr's class taught me that economics is not a subject that you can beat around the bush with and it requires rigorous focus and practice. During the Orr's class, we were given a project called the Stock Market Project where we learned about the stock market and how it functions. We chose stocks and created graphs comparing its change in price over time. The project gave us a decent understanding of how stocks work. I found it interesting.
