This course is recommended for students wanting a better understanding of economics and especially for college-bound students, since many majors require economics courses. The class includes macro and microeconomics, the study of markets, prices, and competition, international business and trade, comparative economic systems and political economy. The class structure includes lecture, audio-visual materials, student reports, stock market analysis, and simulation activities. The classroom is often transformed into a marketplace where each student is an individual player in a market. Students take a standardized economic literacy test at the completion of the course. Upon completion of the course, students should have a practical knowledge of what is known as the economic way of thinking.
