MarketSim helps students understand microeconomic theory. They take the roles of consumers and producers in a simulated economy. Exchanges are made by posting and accepting offers at terms they choose. In the "Simultaneous Play" version, students must participate in a game at the same time. The simulations, designed for principles classes, can be used in intermediate theory.
