Description

Focus on materials based on Unit 2 Macroeconomics in the Curriculum Guide from the College Board.

Help students understand how to calculate GDP, NGDP and RGDP.  We will address measuring the types of unemployment and participation, and answer questions like Why do some people benefit from inflation but others do not?

As we delve through these topics, see how you can also prepare students for CEE’s exciting annual competition, the National Economics Challenge.
