AP MACROECONOMICS SUMMER ASSIGNMENT (and throughout the course too!)


Although the College Board curriculum for AP Macro is fairly specific in nature, students who are more familiar with current economic conditions find the class more interesting and easier to understand. It will also help you to draw connections between what we are discussing in the classroom and the world economy. Therefore, to best prepare yourself for AP Macro, become informed about the state of the U.S. economy and the economic issues at the forefront of national politics.


1. Visit the websites of major national media and read articles addressing economic conditions or issues.


2. Listen to podcasts such as: "Econ Talk," "NPR Planet Money Podcast," "Macro Musings," and "Freakonomics Podcasts."


3. Listen to news programs such as NPR's "All Things Considered" to learn about current events and their potential/actual effects on the world economy. 




Two Interesting Articles on the Covid Recession

Dear All,
I recently posted two articles on the Covid Recession and how the government is attempting to address it. They are interesting and relevant to what we are talking about in class over the next two units. Enjoy!

1.2 and 1.3 Practice Problems posted in your class' page

Additional practice problems are available through your class' page on my website. THEY ARE NOT GRADED but are instead for additional practice before the Unit I test. The key for them is also posted in the same assignment.
