Microeconomics is the study of the economic behavior of individual consumers, firms, and industries and the distribution of production and income among them. It considers individuals both as suppliers of labor and capital and as the ultimate consumers of the final product. On the other hand, it analyses firms both as suppliers of products and as consumers of labor and capital.

Microeconomics seeks to analyze the market form or other types of mechanisms that establish relative prices amongst goods and services and/or allocates society's resources amongst their many alternative uses.


Resources in the format of questions used for previous AP exams in this course will provided to all students who desire to take the Microeconomics AP exam. Use of the class website will give you access to the specific topics and objectives that will be covered in the course. Members of the class are exempt from the final examination if they earn at least an "A-" average for the two quarters or take the AP examination.


Organization is the key to success in this course. The expectation is that as a student of the course you will maintain pace in the text reading, note-taking, and completion of weekly assignments indicated by the forum, the lab activity, and the reading of Murder on the Margin which are due on each Friday by the end of the school day (for you locker room lawyers-that means 3:15 p.m. unless otherwise noted).
