This course (for which a student can obtain college credit) is an introduction to microeconomics – i.e. the theories of rational choice-making by consumers and producers of goods and services, and the implications of those choices for market prices, quality, and product variety. The course promotes understanding of economic decision making and its factors, and teaches how to interpret graphs, charts, and data to describe and explain economic concepts. Enrollment is open to students below 11th grade on an exception basis.
