Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms K. Browning

Are you thinking about a career in business, marketing, or politics? If you are, think Economics! In this course you’ll learn what markets are all about, how buyers and sellers negotiate a ‘fair’ price, and how government decisions can affect it all. You’ll be drawing graphs, thinking logically, explaining your ideas, and understanding (some of!) what our politicians are saying. You’ll also learn just how much Ms Browning likes chilli chocolate.
