  • NEW! More Topics Covered: Problem sets covering elasticity, perfect competition, game theory, total revenue and marginal revenue, fiscal and monetary policy, and more. This enables professors to find an experiment for each major topic in principles.
  • NEW! Expanded Material: New experiments covering monopoly, benefits of trade, and currency exchange enhance micro, international and money/banking sections.

  • Systematic Process: Each Classroom Experiment opens with an Introduction that reviews a key principle and is then followed by a Scenario in which the experiment is setup and explained to the student. In this way, students get a review and a template to help them adjust to the experiment.
  • Relevancy: For example, in a Classroom Experiment on the supply and demand of exploitable resources, a student is asked to imagine that he or she is a moose hunter. They are provided with facts about the market, and then make decisions based on these facts. This helps put the student in the frame of mind of a real life scenario, thus giving the economic topics more relevancy.
  • Follow-up to Experiments: The Scenarios in Classroom Experiments are followed by Reflections - short-answer questions about the experiment the students have just undertaken. An Afterthought sums up the experiment and conveys other situations where the principle might be applied. This reinforces the learning.
