1 ADVANCED PLACEMENT MICROECONOMICS COURSE SYLLABUS Economics is a way of looking at the choices people make regarding their time, money, and talent. Studying economics shows how goods and services are produced, distributed, and consumed. In AP Macroeconomics you will learn about basic economic concepts and how they are applied at a national and global level. You will analyze economic behavior using major macroeconomic indicators, examine the implications of both fiscal and monetary policy, and understand the international economy with regard to both trade and finance. In addition, you will learn to apply an economic way of thinking, and use graphical analysis to study human behavior. EXPECTATIONS: Provide yourself with a complete opportunity to learn economics. This requires that you give the course your full attention while in class. Do not interfere with the opportunities of your classmates to learn economics Arrive on time, be in class for the entire period and be prepared to participate fully. Participation requires that you take detailed notes and carefully practice the graphical analysis of course material. SUPPLIES TO BRING Notebook your notes will be a very important part of this course Pencil and multiple color pens (they will make it easier to graph) Textbook (you will be issued a textbook, make sure you bring it to class) COURSE MATERIALS: Textbook: o Ray, Margaret, Anderson, David, Krugman, Paul and Wells, Rogin.

If you are struggling, have questions, or need assistance please feel free to meet with me. The following are times when we may meet for additional support: Tutorials: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday from 7:35 to 8:35 6 th Period Prep questions any time! EVALUATION: Remember, this is a college level course, and I expect college level work. Homework/classwork 20% of marking period grades Student Resource Manual from the NCEE. Problem sets from various resources intended to module the AP Test. FRQs and MC. Note-book checks once per unit. Multiple Choice and Free Response Quizzes 20% of marking period grades These quizzes are intended to keep you sharp throughout the year. These quizzes are modeled to simulate the AP exam. Vocabulary Quizzes 20% of marking period grades Every unit will have one vocab quiz. Vocab words and terms are found in the textbook in multiple locations. You can find them throughout the modules as bold or italic text. You can find them at the end of each unit under Section Summary: Key Terms. Also, you can find most words in the back of the book or on-line. I will also introduce words not from the text that you will be responsible for. Pay attention in class and take good notes! Two-thirds of the AP exam is multiple-choice questions. One-third of the multiple-choice questions are focused around vocabulary words and concepts. These quizzes are intended to prepare you for these questions because one-sixth of the test is vocabulary!!! Unit Tests 40% of marking period grades Tests will be very much like a concentrated AP exam. You will be tested on multiple choice and free response questions relevant to the unit of study. A test will follow the completion of each unit. Practice tests will be given but are loosely based on the test. I intend to make you think when testing, meaning you might not have seen the question before and need to think your way through it. See the end of your syllabus for sample multiple-choice and free-response questions. AP Microeconomics Course Syllabus Page 2

3 MATERIAL TO BE COVERED UNIT 1: FOUNDATIONS OF ECONOMICS (APPROXIMATELY 3 WEEKS) Objectives: Students will define economics based on the concepts of limited resources and unlimited wants. Students will apply understanding of opportunity costs to examples and illustrate the tradeoff on a production possibility frontier and through the discussion of analytical examples. Students will explain how different types of economies decide what to produce, how to produce them, and how to distribute them. They will discuss the type of economic system in place in the United States. Students will use the concepts of absolute and comparative advantage to demonstrate how specialization and exchange increase total output. Students will differentiate, both graphically and in verbal description, between shifts in and movements along supply and demand curves. Students will graphically depict a market equilibrium using supply and demand curves. Students will describe how income and substitution effects impact the shape of the demand curve. Students identify how marginal analysis is used in various economic circumstances. Marginal utility, marginal benefits and costs, diminishing marginal returns.

Students will review the ways in which a competitive market with no government intervention typically produces the most efficient result. Students will graph and discuss the ways in with negative externalities lead to market failure and over-consumption of the good. They will then discuss the methods by which the government might make the market more efficient. Students will evaluate the effectiveness of taxes, quantity controls, and the sale of pollution credits in markets with negative externalities. Students will graph and discuss the ways in with positive externalities lead to market failure and under-consumption of the good. They will then discuss the methods by which the government might make the market more efficient. Students will evaluate the effectiveness of subsidies, public education, and other government policies in markets with positive externalities. Students will discuss the characteristics of public goods and identify examples of goods that share some (or all) of those characteristics. Students will define the free rider problem and discuss the role of government in the provision of public goods and services. Students will define the Coase Theorem and discuss the possibility for a private solution to externality problems when its conditions are met. Students will discuss the problem of asymmetric information and discuss the way consumers, firms, and governments provide protection where information is lacking. Students will analyze and debate the impact of the moral hazard problem. Students will review the market failures caused by monopoly and evaluate the ways in which government limits the power of monopolies. Students will debate the potential problem of unequal income distribution in market economies. Using the Lorenz Curve and Gini coefficient students will compare the levels of income distribution in different economies. Students will compare and contrast proportional, progressive and regressive taxes and discuss the degree to which they would impact income distribution. Students will evaluate the impact of government tax polices and transfer payments on the distribution of income and economic efficiency.
