In AP Macroeconomics, students will explore the principles of economics that apply to an economic system as a whole. To accomplish this, students will use graphs, charts, and data to analyze, describe, and explain economic concepts. The primary focus of the course will be on defining economic principles and models, explaining given economic outcomes, determining outcomes of specific economic situations, and modeling economic situations using graphs or visual representations.
