This class fulfills the Personal Finance Class graduation requirement. The AP Macroeconomics course provides students with a thorough understanding of the principles of economics and how economists use those principles to examine aggregate economic behavior. Students learn how the measures of economic performance, such as gross domestic product (GDP), inflation, and unemployment are constructed and how to apply them to evaluate the macroeconomic conditions of an economy. The course recognizes the global nature of economics and provides ample opportunities to examine the impact of international trade and finance on national economies. Various economic schools of thought are introduced as students consider solutions to economic problems.
In addition to earning high school credit, students may receive college credit either through Lakeland College or by passing the AP exam.
Pre-requisite: This course will be open to juniors and seniors who have a GPA of 3.25 or higher. Microeconomics (semester 1) is not a required prerequisite. However, students who have not taken Microeconomics will be required to complete a unit on basic economic principles prior to the start of semester 2.
