I just added the first macroeconomics review activity. Bank balance sheets have always been a place where my students have struggled. I hope this activity will help make understanding how events impact a bank’s balance sheet easier. Here you will also find some tips and tricks regarding how to tackle a bank balance sheet question.
The second activity is up and running. This activity covers oligopolies, game theory, and the pay-off matrix. Once you learn how these work, test yourself with this microeconomics activity. I have also included some tips on how to solve a Game Theory pay off matrix.
The first review activity is up and running. The first activity covers all of the microeconomics graphs including supply and demand, market structures, externalities and tariffs. The activity covers shading areas on the graphs (profit, loss, etc.). Shading has often appeared on the AP Microeconomics FRQ’s in the past. I have also included some tips on how to find the areas on the graph where FRQ’s often require some shading.
I would like to acknowlege the work of Dick Brunelle and Steven Reff from Reffonomics.com who’s work inspired many of the review games on this site. I would also like to thank Francis McMann, James Chasey, and Steven Reff who taught me how to be an effective AP Economics teacher at AP summer institutes; as well as the countless high school teachers, and college professors from the AP readings, economics facebook groups, and #econtwitter.
