This session will cover the economic model of Supply and Demand. Why do tickets to the Super Bowl cost so much more than seats to a regular football game in the same stadium?   Why does a brain surgeon earn so much more than a restaurant dishwasher? The interaction of demand and supply is fundamental to understanding not only these everyday “mysteries,” but also how government actions such as taxing, spending, and regulating the money supply will affect the economy as a whole.

This session is one part of a series of in-class sessions and out-of-class work designed to cover all of the economic concepts in the high school Economics and Personal Finance course. This session and its accompanying homework will comprise 13% of the total series (3 hours in-person, and 4 hours homework).

While particularly helpful for those teaching economics and personal finance, any teacher wanting to deepen their economic knowledge will find the institute beneficial.  Participants who successfully complete all six modules (42 hours) and pass a post-test will be recognized as a VCEE Certified Economics Educator: High School. See the other scheduled sessions listed below.
