AP Macroeconomics

AP MacroeconomicsAP Macroeconomics is an introductory college-level macroeconomics course. Students cultivate their understanding of the principles that apply to an economic system as a whole by using principles and models to describe economic situations and predict and explain outcomes with graphs, charts, and data as they explore concepts like economic measurements, markets, macroeconomic models, and macroeconomic policies. We will not be using a textbook in this course, however, we will be using curriculum developed by ACDC Economics, including but not limited to instructional videos and worksheets.
