Welcome to the study of AP Macroeconomics. In our class we will be discussing an introduction to Economic Theory by building Supply & Demand models, analyzing Inflation, calculating Unemployment, and computing Gross Domestic Product (GDP).
I encourage you to contact me with any questions you may have. My preferred method of contact is through email (firstname.lastname@example.org). My direct phone number is 409.729.7644 (x252).
My class schedule is AP Macroeconomics 1 & 7 for the Spring Semester. My Conference Periods are Blocks 2 & 6. My tutorial schedule is officially Monday mornings, but I am available Tuesday - Friday afternoons to provide assistance as well.
Each student will need the following for my classroom:
- 3-ring notebook (1 inch)
- Pens & Pencils
- College Ruled Notebook Paper
- Dividers for organizing notebook
- Map Pencils (Basic set of 6 will suffice)
Classroom management (class alerts, announcements, homework assignments, etc.) will be conducted entirely through the Schoology System (link here). I have had tremendous success using this program in my previous teaching experience. Parents are encouraged to be a part of this process. Each child will be sent home with a blue flyer stating directions on how to create your Parent Profile.
Unless requested and approved, students will not have a home-bound hardback textbook. Students will be granted access to an electronic textbook for the duration of the course. Each student will be given a white handout which has the redemption code necessary to access the electronic textbook.
