Prerequisite: None

Course Description: The Economics course provides students with a broad introduction to the field of economics- on the microeconomic and macroeconomic level. Because economic decision-making requires students to gain an understanding about the ways in which individuals, businesses, governments, and societies allocate limited resources in a wide variety of contexts, this course enables students to develop an economic way of thinking to interpret how the world works.  Students in this course will use an inquiry model of learning to ask important questions, examine and evaluate sources, create answers to their questions, and take informed action based on their findings. Students will also have the opportunity to take part in the Stock Investing Project as part of the course – the aim of which is to provide practical investing experience.
