Please be aware that the books and materials used during the spring 2015 semester may not be identical to those used in spring 2014. The final booklist for the spring 2015 AP Macroeconomics course is not yet available.
This course will introduce students to the basic principles of macroeconomics and how to approach economic issues from a biblical worldview. By the end of the course, students should have a solid understanding of:
The course will employ readings, lectures, video segments, graphing tutorials, and PowerPoint presentations to enhance understanding of these topics. Students will be expected to make use of the aforementioned resources to successfully complete the homework assignments (including assignments from the Econ Central website), participate in discussion forums, and prepare for quizzes and exams.
Am I Ready for this AP Course?
This is a rigorous, college-level course. PHC Prep recommends that students have a strong background in mathematics, preferably having completed Algebra II, in order to succeed in AP Macroeconomics. AP Microeconomics (offered in the fall) is not a prerequisite for AP Macroeconomics; however, students who plan to take both courses are encouraged to take AP Microeconomics first, since the topics in AP Macroeconomics build on the microeconomics topics. Please visit the College Board’s AP Macroeconomics page for more information about the material and skills students will study in the course and will need to master for the AP exam in this subject.
