Advanced Placement Macroeconomics
Grades 11, 12
Why does our money have value? Is it really a good idea for our government to strive for a balanced budget? Why should we care about the economics of other countries? What makes up our GDP? AP Macroeconomics is a course that looks at the United States economy as a whole as well as how the world’s different economies affect each other. We know our resources, including money, are scarce. So how do we most effectively allocate them? AP Macroeconomics analyzes all parts of the economy and how they work together; it will help you understand the world with far greater depth. Macroeconomics is a mathematical and technical look at the economy and the course will require a time commitment outside of the classroom dedicated to reading, research, and problem solving.
